Berlin Marathon: Sub 2:30 Training Log








10 week average mileage: 120kms or 75 miles


Extra things to note;

  • Core, strength, foam rolling and stretching sessions: every morning for 10 minutes.

  • Recovery runs (except Fridays) included a 1km Hot Spot in the middle. This a 1km pick-up done as quickly as possible.

  • Rest days according to feel.

  • Weekly average of 120kms or 75 miles.

  • Ideally I would have preferred to sharpen up more towards the end, but was forced to take extra rest due to shin issues.
