2017 week 11 recap- 5 weeks until Boston Marathon

               I was so excited for this week.

2017 Week 10 Recap-6 week before Boston Marathon!

This was a tough week.  Not because of the workouts, or mileage.  It was tough because it took me the whole week to recover from last week’s 10k race.  I shouldn’t be terribly surprised, I seem to recover slower than most of my running buddies. The fatigue and soreness will hang around an extra dayContinue reading “2017 Week 10 Recap-6 week before Boston Marathon!”

  I had a great week last week.  I hope you guys did too! The weather was prime marathon training conditions here.  Temperatures in the 50s and a light wind most of the week.
