Training for the week 10/1 to 10/21 was about recovering from Smuttynose Marathon, where I went 3:00:38, for 13th place overall of 1000 and my fastest marathon in 5 years. Even better was that this enabled me to submit a faster qualifying time to BAA for Boston Marathon 2013.
Mon: 1+ mile keep-the-streak-alive run – road
Tues: 4 miles, easy – road
Wed: 4.5 miles, easy – road
Thurs: 6 miles, easy – trail
Fri: 8 miles, social easy – road
Sat: 5.5 miles, easy – road
Sun: 6.5 miles, sometimes tempo– road
Total miles: 36 miles
Goal for the coming week will be to continue recovering from Smuttynose. Since the race, I have felt pounded, the joints stiff and sore. A full summer of trails and mountains and a last two months of hard core speed work finally caught up to me.
Beer of the Week
Coming in a following week.
