Here are some stats related to my marathon build up. Some interesting numbers. A couple of things stand out for me. One is that despite the amount of Ks I'm running the weight is remaining stable although the body fat is coming down as it should. Sometimes there is a lag with my weight loss, it may start to drop in a couple of weeks.
And another thing is the 203km week! My most Ks run, biggest week to date. Very pleased to know that I can now handle this kind of mileage and not breakdown. Expecting a letter any day now from Haile Gebrselassie with instructions on how to recognise other plus 200K runners in the secretive "High Mileage Club" ;)
What do you make of these figures? I want to do 5 200K plus weeks before my marathon, this will either break me or make me, we will see.
