If you started your preparation at the beginning of this training program, you will have been building up your conditioning steadily and should be feeling fit enough to comfortably jog the 14km to Bondi.
The next three weeks will be the most intense of this training plan, as we seek to build on our speed and endurance.
Many people will leave their training plan to the last minute and only be thinking of running in the City2Surf a month before the event, so you are already weeks ahead of many of them in your preparation.
I know about this last minute training approach as I’ve done it many times in my younger and more invincible days. Once I registered on the day, turning up with cash in hand, having only decided to run the night before. (Don’t even think about it, those last minute registration days are long gone.)
This week consists of two easy runs and two fairly long runs.
Good luck and best wishes. Enjoy.
