Training Weeks 11 and 12 were a little crazy because I spent 10 hours in the car driving to Boston and then running through Boston and then driving the 10 hours back home. Obviously, I wasn’t in Boston just for a change of scenery, I was in Boston to watch Ryan run the marathon!
Ryan killed it in Boston and ran a 2:55:35! Crazy Amazing!
Some people think I am crazy for training while on vacation but I actually look forward to it. I love getting out and exploring a city all on my feet. It’s a little hard to get up when I am the only one who needs to get up early to get a workout in but then I remind myself “I’ve got dreams and they’re worth more than my sleep”
Training Week 12
Monday – 10 Crazy Miles – I ran 5 miles to Boston College to watch the marathon, then I ran to the finish area so I could see Ryan.
Tuesday – Rest Day/Drive Home Day
Wednesday – Rest Day/ Recover from driving and not sleeping
Thursday – 1 mile warmup and 10 mile tempo run at an 8 min pace or faster
Friday – 52 minutes elliptical
Saturday – 20 miles (1 mile warm up, Hermes 10 miler and 9 mile cool down) I haven’t wrote my post yet but I PR’d in the 10 miler!!!!
Total Running Mileage: 47
Now I only have 1 more week left before I start tapering. The way I like to think of it as is I have 3 major workouts left, speedwork, tempo run and long run. After that my body gets to rest and taper!
And now drumroll please
