Record Week

training stats
week's total: run 74K, gym 2 sessions
Su 30/03: hilly jog, 16K, 1:42 hrs
Sa 29/03: treadmill run, 9K, 0:55 hrs, gym 2 hrs
Fr 28/03: slow jog, 10K, 1:15 hrs
We 26/03: long run, 30K, 3:08 hrs
Tu 25/03: hilly run, 9K, 0:48 hrs
Mo 24/03: gym 2 hrs
I was amazed after recalling the week's training. I had forgotten that I ran on Tuesday and so this week's mileage adds up to 74K - more than I intended to do.

The main progress is that I finally managed to do the absolutely essential long run of 30K. Most schedules in sports literature recommend to do 4 to 6 long runs to get fit for a marathon. And the last long run should be done 3 weeks prior to the race, or 2 weeks latest. So do not take my training as your guideline to success. It is just an experiment enforced by my knee problems. I hope to do another long run next Wednesday.
