Week 6 of Training for the Philadelphia Marathon


Another week of training is nearly complete. This week has been a recovery week following a few weeks of hard training. It was something recommended by my coach and something I probably did not make enough time for in my previous training.

This week has consisted of easy runs for the most part. My only run not done at an easy pace this week was Tuesday’s speed work consisting of 100 m sprints, something I have not included in my training in the past.

Other than my speed work my week also included two easy paced runs home from work. I still have one more run left for this week, a 12 km effort scheduled for Sunday. Next week will kick off a few more weeks of intense training following this week of recovery.

How did your week go?
