Boston Marathon is six weeks away.
How time manages to go by so quickly boggles my mind. Three months ago I would have laughed at the idea of running for longer than two hours and tomorrow I will most likely be running for just under four. FOUR HOURS OF RUNNING.
Thankfully, last week was my "extra" week, my 19th week in an 18 week training plan so I was just planning on repeating the week previous. Believe it or not, the NYC trip did not mess me up this week, but running a little too fast (I may have been playing with sub-7 minute miles on some TM fartleks Tuesday) and my knee has been out of sorts the last few days. Thankfully I gave it lots of ice and rest and rolling and I think (knock on wood) that it is well, after a slower (12 minute miles) 5 miles.
21 miles this week. Last time my mileage was that low was the second week in January!
Mon- Weight class (60 minutes)
Tues- 12 mile run (2 hours)... 10 on TM in 1:40 and 2 with the BOB in 20 minutes.
Weds-20 mins elliptical, 20 mins bike, 20 mins rowing (60 mins cardio total)
Friday-9 mile run in Central Park!! Where I ran into some truffula trees. Don't mind my cross eyed look. Nine miles is a lot to run on only two shot blocks! I was practically delirious :)
