Hi Salty Runners! I hope you all had a great week of training. This week marked Week 7 of my 20 week training plan for the Hamilton Marathon. In terms of mileage, I’ve been hovering in the mid-high 80s (kilometres). I completed my long run on Friday morning, before heading to Montreal for the weekend.
Monday – 12K @ 5:24 in the morning. HIIT class in the evening (45 minutes).
Tuesday – 15.17K with 3 x 1 hilly mile loops (7:00, 6:59, 6:57) + warm-up and cool-down. As I mentioned, I run on Tuesdays and Thursdays with the OAC Racing Team. Tuesdays in the summer we meet at a nearby park and run a timed hilly mile loops.
Thursday – 12K @ 4:55 with 3 x (400m, 2 x 200m, 800m) + warm-up and cool-down. I normally run with the team on the track on Thursdays, but due to a commitment in the evening I completed this workout by myself along the Canal. It was tough.
Friday – 27K at 5:30. After last weeks solid 36K, I didn’t fuss about pace on this run. I used a modified Ottawa Marathon route and used water fountains along the way. I completed my long run on Friday before driving to Montreal for a weekend of fun at my sister’s! We went to Osheaga to see Lana Del Ray on Saturday night!
Saturday – REST.
Sunday – 8K @ 5:55. Short recovery run before driving home! I ran through downtown Montreal.
14 weeks until the Hamilton Road 2 Hope Marathon!
