2 weeks until the Boston Marathon
20 weeks until IMMT
Total Training hours last week: 9
How am I feeling? I am now starting to taper in preparation for the Boston Marathon, which is two weeks from today! I am still planning on running it, even though my plantar fasciits has been raising hell. I have spoken with my triathlon coach and he said we can’t rule out Boston just yet… hopefully he’s right. Last week I had a rest day on Tuesday, which even though I hated not doing any training on that day, it was most definitely what my body needed. My training week also ended with a recovery day yesterday (Sunday) and I enjoyed a nice long walk with Todd and Oliver at the lake nearby. The weather was perfect yesterday and it felt great to be outside! Spring has finally arrived and it’s fantastic.
Training notes: Each week I am feeling stronger and stronger on the bike. I also feel an improvement in the pool, which is always exciting. I have recently incorporated fins which are helping a lot with my kicking mechanics. I might be switching over to ‘pool running’ until we get to Boston, I need to give my foot a rest…. as much as I don’t want to, I think it’s necessary. On Saturday I went for a long run on the trails near my house, which are finally dry… it felt amazing! Running on the trails was the highlight of my training this past weekend. There is just something about running through the woods that’s so peaceful!
