Kilometres Starting To Add Up

Almost at the end of Week 2 of this marathon training program.

Just ran 7.5 km in 48:26 @ 6:27 mins/km pace across both road and trails (and a fair bit of grass).

Feeling really good about where I’m at with my running at this stage of the training cycle. I’ve got the HBF Run For A Reason coming up later this month. I won’t train specifically for that, but I will do around 170km before I get there which should put me in good stead. Just going to focus on pushing to the higher part of my allowed base pace of 6:20 mins/km from now on.

I ran 10km yesterday around Herdsman Lake. I’ve done 35.5km so far this week and I’ll finish off with probably a 5km tomorrow.

It’s strange to think that less than a month ago I was really injured, missed a race I was looking forward to and generally feeling glum about my chances of running a marathon this year.
