Week 3 of Training for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon

As previously mentioned last week was a bit of an off-week in terms of training. This week I managed to get myself back on track. With a run still to go tonight and a run to go tomorrow I have currently completed 40.5 km so far this week.

While I did manage to get back on track in terms of mileage this week the heat prevented me from really pushing the pace with any of my runs this week. Given that it was 34 today and expected to be even hotter tomorrow I don’t expect those to be very intense efforts either.

While I didn’t get a chance to push the pace this week I should have a good opportunity Wednesday night when I run my next race. I am planning to do a 10 mile race. The best part about the race is that it starts close to my office so I get to run over to the start line for a warm-up.

Before I get to the race week four of my training will kick off with a longer run on Sunday. My plan for Sunday is to get back up around the 20 km range for my long runs since the past two Sundays have given me 10.5 km runs.

How did your training go this week?
