Training Continues

Did my first long run since last weekend’s marathon yesterday – a 14.25 miler which wasn’t at all bad after I’d settled into my pace at around 3 miles. I think a 14-16 mile weekend run is probably the optimal distance for my long runs between marathons as it’s keeping my general endurance level up whilst still allowing me to recover between races. Mixing that with my weekly speedwork sessions and and a short post-weekend recovery run seems to be a formula that works at the moment so I will see how it goes.

This last couple of weeks I’ve noticed that I’m starting to ache in places that never did before so I’ll need to keep an eye on them to prevent any significant injuries developing over time. Joints are all fine but I think the surrounding tendons are starting to complain so I’ll have to concentrate a bit more on stretches and mobility excercises going forward.

Should be a pretty standard couple of training weeks now until the next marathon on the 7th. As always, yesterday’s session is viewable on my Garmin Connect  site.
