Boston Marathon Training – Week 10

Hello everyone!

I’ll start with a confession that I STILL didn’t follow my marathon training schedule to the letter this week! I’m still struggling a little with motivating myself to do speed sessions. However, I did do two nice steady-paced runs of 6.2 miles and 6.5 miles on the Tuesday and the Friday respectively (Tuesday’s run had a couple of verging-on fast miles in it which got my heart rate up nicely). The rest of my running last week was at an easy pace – 5.5 miles on the Wednesday and 15.1 miles on the Sunday. I actually ran further than scheduled on Sunday. My schedule recommended 12 miles, but I couldn’t resist getting one last longer run in. All in all I ran slightly more miles for the week than the scheduled 32, finishing the week with a total of 33.3 miles run.

Another positive this week was that I got back to some cross-training with a one-hour long indoor cycling class on Thursday, in which I cycled 16 miles. I also did one 30-minute full body strength workout on the Tuesday and I did at least one core exercise after all of my runs.

I’m now in Week 11 of training and it’s only 12 days until marathon day! I really am starting to feel excited, which is great!

Something very positive for my online coaching business happened in the last few days!
