Marathon training week 61 min read
Week 5 training went right to plan with my three key sessions all being completed with a minimum of fuss. Winter temperatures have made early morning running a little more difficult but enjoyable once you start and recovery is easier in colder conditions.
This week sees me needing to travel to Sydney for work Monday morning so will have a rest day Monday and a run in new surrounds on Tuesday. Looking forward to run in a new location. However will not run my normal hill session on Tuesday due to not knowing if there is a suitable hill near my hotel yet.
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – Sydney Intervals 12 x 2 min 30 seconds recovery
Thursday – Hill repeats
Friday – Rest
Saturday – Long run 2 hours 40 min or Parkrun
Sunday – Long run or rest day
Will decide during the week whether I want to do parkrun on Saturday or a long run. Leaning towards the long run as I want to ensure I get this in as it’s key to building endurance towards the marathon.
Hope you training goes well this week. Keep running.

Winter sounds nice. Our heat index yesterday was 106 degrees…
Glad your training is going well!
Thanks. I’d trade the heat at the moment. I’d rather run in the heat than the cold
How cold is it? I don’t mind training in the heat but I race better in the cold. For everything thats not running, I like the heat. : )
It’s not that cold. Down to about 2c overnight so it’s manageable
