RunningBlog: Week 48

Week 48
This flu has really wrecked my training plans for the end of the year. I’m still coughing a lot at night, but it seems to be easing up during the day a bit. So today I went out for my first run in 2.5 weeks. I took it very easy with five minutes’ walk to warm up and then 2:1 run/walk intervals (at a slow pace). I felt pretty good! I didn’t feel any need to cough during the running portions, but on the walks I could tell how weak my lungs are. It felt good to be out in the fresh air and sunshine though. I am excited to put November behind me and kick off my training plan for the Gold Coast Marathon!

Nov. 28: 2.81km (walking)
Dec. 1: 2.81km (walking)
Dec. 2: 4.06km
Total this week: 4.06km
Total in 2011: 974.02km (608.7mi)

To meet my goal of running 1100km in 2011, I’d need to run 126km in the next 4 weeks. That’s 31.5km a week. I don’t think it’s gonna happen, folks.

  1. 1,000 is a nice round number – and your first marathon… an awesome year! Are you going to run another one later in the year too? You should be able to get 1200 in 2012. Numbers will add up fast with marathon training.
