Boston Training: Peak Week

Less than three weeks. That’s it. In 19 days and 22 hours I’ll be on the starting line in Hopkinton. That’s nothing. Peak week is done, the work is done, and now I just have to be smart and keep it together for another 20 days and 1 hour to make it to the finish … Continue reading Boston Training: Peak Week


Boston Training: Weeks 10-12

This is it, training prime time. With the conclusion of week 12, there are just four weeks between me and Hopkinton, Massachusetts. I'm currently in the midst of peak week, and then it’s all downhill from there (well, except for those infamous Newton hills). The past three weeks weren’t exactly the norm for me. First, I … Continue reading Boston Training: Weeks 10-12

Boston Training: Weeks 6-9

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, so I’m more than a little behind with my training logs. That doesn’t mean training hasn’t been continuing full steam ahead though! In the past four weeks, I’ve logged a total of 228 miles and run six solid workouts. I usually aim for two workouts per week, but … Continue reading Boston Training: Weeks 6-9

Boston Training: Week 5

Last week’s blizzard already seems like a distant memory at this point, but that didn't prove to be true earlier in the week, when slush and ice and poorly plowed roads proved a little difficult. But that couldn't stop me from getting back to the grind after a down week, with two tough workouts, and … Continue reading Boston Training: Week 5
