This was my big week, peak mileage week! I am happy to say it went very well! In spite of this post being 2 days late ☺️. I am feeling good and the training load was perfect, so all is well. Also, I got my
Boston Marathon confirmation email, so that was great news! Here is what I did last week:
Tuesday: Double run day, 30′ easy in the morning and 70′ easy after work. I hadn’t done one of these in a while, but it was alright!
Wednesday: Group WO, 15′ easy, 15′ @MP, 10 x 30” hill sprints, 45′ easy. Aside from the hill sprints which were freaking hard, I enjoyed this workout.
Thursday: 80′ easy, headed out with a friend for a loop in the trails and then finished with a sandwich, which we were looking forward to the whole time.
Friday: 45′ easy, snuck this in before work so I could attend a going away party. It was rainy but still a good morning run.
Saturday: Giant WO: 40′ easy, 7km @5:08, 7km @4:58, 3km @4:51, 3km @4:43. I wasn’t sure how this would go, but surprised myself and was excited when I exceeded the target paces for a total of 28km.
Sunday: 135′ easy, headed out on a slightly modified big loop to the ocean I did last Sunday. It went well.
Total Weekly Mileage: 108km
Now that race day is in 2.5 weeks, the training volume is on the lower end of things as I prepare for the taper!
