Peak Week

By smithdm3 - Posted on 03 May 2006

5 mile run photoSo, this is it... The big week of training, the 40 miles in a week in preparation for the marathon. I did 5 miles last night as seen in the photo. I'll probably do the same run Thursday, which leaves today's 10 mile run on the treadmill and Saturday's loooong run of 20 miles around downtown Ottawa (from my place, down to the western end of Byron, over to the river, to parliament, along the canal to the arboretum, into the experimental farm, big loop and then back to my place... crazy).

That will be the longest run I'll do before the marathon, so I hope it goes okay. I felt a bit of pain in my right knee near the end of last week's 14 mile 'stepback' run, but hopefully that won't be a big problem this time. If it is on Saturday, I'll probably look into buying a new pair of shoes for the marathon, could be that mine are wearing out after a year (though only really 6 months of real running) of use.

I'll be happy when this week is over, as we begin the 3 week taper next week in preparation for the big race, which is in 25 days. :)
