Boston Marathon Training Recap: 10 Weeks Till Race Day!

Last week was a small step back week. My coach cut the miles a tiny bit for Sunday's race, but we did not taper for the race.

Still working hard on all the physical therapy exercises...


I keep this band with me at all times :)



Here are what my workouts looked like for last week:

Monday February 1st: 6 miles

Tuesday February 2nd: 6 miles

Wednesday February 3rd: 8 miles. Two mile warm up, then 6 miles at 7:45-8:00 pace

My splits: 7:42, 7:43, 7:51, 7:56. 7:42, 7:48

The idea here was not to run too hard - just a brisk good pace

Thursday February 4th: 6 miles

Friday February 5th: DAY OFF

Saturday February 6th: 3 mile shake out jog

Sunday February 7th: RACE (with a 1.5 mile warm up)


Total Miles: 43.6

I do a core circuit, dynamic stretching and PT exercises every day. Weights 2-3 days a week.


We had a fun night out as a family last week. Elle had pajama night at her preschool...





Check out this video from my coach's blog. He is talking about the importance of easy runs and how to pace yourself. Great info here!






How "easy" are your easy runs?

Happiness Is Running Life!
