Marathon training: week 7 update
Here's a recap:
- Monday: Scheduled Rest Day
- Tuesday: No run (scheduled for 3 miles)
- Wednesday: 6 miles at marathon pace
- Thursday: 3 miles
- Friday: 2 miles
- Saturday: Skiing
- Sunday: 12 miles (11:04 pace)
I talked to a guy at work who has run a couple marathons about pace during his training runs. He ran one run per week at planned marathon pace (PMP), typical training runs at about 30 seconds below PMP, and long runs at 60-90 seconds below PMP. I think I will try to follow this approach.
Next week adds one mile to the plan for a total of 25 miles. My long run next Sunday will be 13 miles, or basically a half marathon. The sad part is I still haven't run the distance in a week that I will (hopefully) be running in a day!
