Week 13 of Training for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon


Another week of training STWM is nearly complete. Unfortunately this one has not been a highlight. So far the interval workout did Tuesday night is my only run of the week.

In my recap last week i mentioned dealing with some pain in my left calf when running. I made it through my 38 km run Sunday morning but Tuesday’s intervals seem to have re-aggravated the issue. As a result, I decided to shut down and rest my leg so that the issue does not linger and I don’t make it worse.

The worst part about this is that despite the discomfort in my left leg I actually had a good workout Tuesday consisting of 10 x (50 m @ 100%, 100m easy). On another week it would have definitely been the highlight of my week as I was still able to push hard for the 50m sprints.

On a positive note, the pain seems to have cleared up a bit after a few days of rest. The fact that I was able to do an interval workout and that there was not any swelling in my leg would seem to indicate that it is not too serious.

I am hoping to be able to get back to training at some point over the weekend but I won’t be taking any chances. I won’t run until my leg has recovered.

How did your week go?
