Newport Beach is a good start

Distance: 12.30km Time: 2:04 Pace: 10’05 kCal: 1072 Heart: N/A RPE: 4 Type: Pain Assessment

So I’ve got 3 months before the marathon and it’s time to start putting in the miles.

Today and tomorrow are 5-6k runs mixed in with 5-6k walks. Then next week it’s all running with some recovery walks outside my regular training.

I know I’m going to be about 3 weeks short on the rest of my training, but I will get all my long runs in before tapering the week before the marathon.

I’ll also have to wait and see what the doctor says about the knee mid-August, but for now I’m planning on going through my routine and build up my mileage. Today’s 5k was a breeze and no pain, so I’ll do a repeat tomorrow and see how it goes.

If all works out, week three will (re)start on Monday!

  1. I like Newport Beach too. Good luck with the knee, mine is playing me up now as well.

    • Hey Seb – Take it easy and ‘watch’ (no pun intended) that knee.
      FYI… my wife likes the Tech 4O so much that she bought one for her 70+ year old father – who has been running for over 50 years every single day. Talk about dedication!

  2. Be careful! Don’t force increased mileage with a potential injury. Train smart & safely!
