Standard Chartered Marathon 2011 Week 4

During the week I ran a total of 43Kms. 7kms on Wednesday, 10 kms on Friday and a 26 kms long run on Sunday. I missed running on Thursday because it was raining and I wasn’t in a mood to go out running in the rain.

I did the weekday runs around a track. I wasn’t trying something fancy like basso 800s, my goal was to maintain a high pace for the duration of the distance.

I am getting better at focusing on my feet movement. I have learnt when I keep focus on my feet movement and prevent my mind wandering am able to maintain my pace.

The Sunday long run was the best so far, I felt my body was getting stronger. I started with a goal of running 24 Kms but I extended it to 26 kms because I was feeling strong. The good weather helped, it was a Sunny morning with cool temperatures. I ran the whole route without taking water and I never felt seriously thirsty at any time. My long run consists of running a very hilly route. It is a route where you are either going up or down. I try my best to step up my pace when climbing up those hills: it is the only way to get better and stronger.

Cross Training.

After missing training on Thursday, I made sure I did indoor work outs. I did press ups and squats. I have also been doing stretching exercises to make sure my leg muscles are nibble and flexible.

So far I haven’t been timing my runs but I plan to start timing myself.

Come October 30th, I will be strong and ready to fly.
