Week 11 of Training for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

There are now less than two months to go until STWM. This training cycle is going by quickly. Based primarily on one result so far this week was another solid week of training.

After taking Monday off for a rest from Sunday’s long run I was scheduled to run a 10 km race Tuesday evening. Unfortunately I was not able to register for the race and had to do my own run later that night. Having been scheduled to run a race I decided to run my own “race”.

My previous 10 km pb was 40:30 which I set last summer. Although not official I am pleased with my result Tuesday night…

That was my first sub-40 minute 10 km run. It is unfortunate it was not an official result and I will have to find myself another 10 km race to attempt an official sub-40 minute km result. That said, to be able to run a sub-40 minute 10 km at this point is a big confidence booster.

As for the rest of my week, I took advantage of some time off work this week to get in a couple afternoon runs with my daughter in the Chariot. Tomorrow I plan to fit in the hill workout I did not have time for earlier in the week and I will end the week with a quick 15 km Sunday morning.

How was your week?
