Another week of training is nearly complete. The plan for week nine was to aim for 100 km. With one day left I am close to that mileage but with another 20 km needed tomorrow not sure I will get there. Still with a minimum of a 10 km run tomorrow I will hit at least 90 km for the week which is not a bad week of training.
The week got off to a good start with the second of my planned long runs of over 30 km. Not having time to go earlier in the day I ended up heading out for a 32 km (20 miles) run after the kids had gone to bed. This is certainly not my favourite time of day for a long run but under the circumstances it is what worked best and it felt good to complete.
I was not able to make it to the dome for intervals this week but think I made up for it with a couple of solid tempo runs including a 12.5 km effort Tuesday night. The second effort was an 8.8 km run last night.
My plan to aim for 100 km this week was to fit in 2-3 multiple run days. I was able to do so with two runs on Wednesday but busy days at work yesterday and today prevented me from repeating that.
While I might not hit my mileage goal for the week I can still say I had a good week of training and there is still plenty of time for me to hit that 100 km goal a couple of times before I start my taper. Week 10 kicks off Sunday with an anticipated 24-25 km run.
How did your week go?
