I just wrapped up week one of my slow climb to 26.2 miles for the London marathon in April. I thought the week went pretty well. I followed my training program almost to a T…almost because I always have to tweak it a bit to my liking.
For this training cycle, I am following the Garmin intermediate training plan which is 3-4 runs per week based on time, not distance, which I prefer. You can easily edit the plan on Garmin’s website, adding or removing activities, changing your workout days, etc. so the plan fits your schedule and liking.
This week I completed 3 runs, an easy run on Tuesday, an interval run on Wednesday, Hot Yoga on Friday, and a quasi-long run on Saturday. Since I’m getting back into the swing of things, I am just really focusing on completed the allotted training time, and not really focusing on my pace, just focusing on getting it done. I work on speed during my interval runs, and focus on finishing my runs on the other days.
