Niagara Falls Marathon Training cont.
Been slacking a bit on the blogging side of things, especially during the dogs days of summer - sorry!
However, training has resumed three weeks ago and have been averaging around 68 km weekly for the past few weeks.
Just like what I wrote the last blog entry , I have been roughly following through one of the Strava Premium training plans in preparation for my marquee fall race at Niagara Falls in October. One of the things I made flexible for myself is to not force runs on any particular given day and having the leverage to closely hit the weekly mileage target on a cumulative basis. This upcoming week, I will be entering week 4. And unlike previous training sessions, racking up such mileage doesn't feel as difficult from previous attempts. I do however have to constantly fight the mental side of things to get myself in tuned and getting outside for a run even though my mind doesn't feel like it.
The highlight of these past few runs is finding the controversial cow statue up in Cathedraltown, Markham. I just had to see the hype in person! But what amazes me is that I am now physically capable of running off to places that would've otherwise require a bike ride or a short drive.
I'll be back on the grind again for the next few weeks and update from there on!
Cheers, - M.W.
