Marathon Training Program: Week 6

Posted Feb 07 2010 12:00am
Week six was a week of comparitive rest, the second step-back week in the training schedule.  Every third week provides a little recovery to prepare for two more weeks of increasing mileage.  I continued to use a hybrid of Higdon's Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 programs, running #1 on weekdays, and #2 on the weekend.  This week reduced the long run distance from 13 miles to 10 miles, and dropped the weekly total by a little more than 3 miles.  This week's total: 29.2 miles.

Next week will be quite a bit tougher.  The mid-week medium run increases from 6 to 7 miles.  If I continue with the hybrid program, Sunday's long run goes to 16 miles.  The total for the week should be around 39 miles.

Six weeks down, twelve to go!
