Week 10 of Training for the Ottawa Marathon

Week 10 of training is nearly complete following tonight’s easy 10 km run. Another easy 10 km run tomorrow will leave me nearly 60 km for the week.

This week was a bit of a transition week coming of my busiest week in terms of mileage last week and leading up to my next race to kick off week 11 on Sunday. I mentioned before that my goal for Sunday’s half-marathon is to aim for 1:30 in order to give me a better idea of the time I should aim for in the Ottawa Marathon next month.

Given that I am using Sunday’s race to gauge my fitness ahead of the marathon the plan for this week was to take it easy this week, cut back on mileage and not to push too hard. Other than a marathon pace run on Monday this week’s efforts have been at a fairly pace.

As mentioned, week 11 kicks off with a half-marathon on Sunday which will leave me with a better idea of what my plan for the Ottawa Marathon will be in 42 days from now.

How did your training go this week?
