Any week that starts with the Boston Marathon is bound to be a good week, even if you aren’t a participant. One of my teammates participated and I was tracking her among others all morning on Monday and of course my IG feed was flooded with all things Boston. I didn’t think it was possible to increase my desire to participate in this event, but I was mistaken. Boston 2018, I’m coming for ya!
This week marked the start of the taper and my mileage has declined significantly already. There are still runs and workouts, but they are much shorter than the previous weeks.
Tuesday: 45′ easy, I also did an NTC core strength workout.
Wednesday: Group workout, 10′ easy, 10’@4;33, 1 mile @6:44, 1 mile @6:46, 1km @3:56, 30′ easy. Not sure how accurate these splits are as my running buddies’ watch said faster, but either way it was a solid workout. After this, I did an NTC abs and arms workout.
Friday: 50′ easy, I got to hear all about the Boston Marathon from my teammate over coffee just before my run, leaving me inspired. When I got home, I did an NTC core strength workout.
Saturday: Solo workout, 10′ easy, 8 sets of 3’@4:40-4:50, 1’@5:20-30, 30 easy, this was a much more chill workout than usual, and that was perfect since I was alone and the regular competitive vibe was missing. I did an NTC core crunch workout in the afternoon too.
Sunday: Long-ish run, there will not be any more runs of this length, or longer until race day. I had 100′ easy and did a loop from home down to Dallas Rd for 18km.
Total Weekly Mileage: 62.3km
