Sunday Runday: Week of 1/9 (Boston Training Week #4)


Monday, 1/9:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Easy 6 miles)

What I Did: My foot had been bothering me so I took Monday off. I’ve had similar pain in the past and attributed it to my icky bunions, but I figured a day or two off at this point won’t do me any harm.

Tuesday, 1/10:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Speed 5 x 1k in 3:54-4:00 with 400 recovery (5k goal of 19:30-20:00))

What I Did: Took Tuesday off, too, and went to get an x-ray at the ortho urgent care. Luckily no stress fractures or even signs of previous damage! So, looks like it was just my bunions. :O

Wednesday, 1/11:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: OFF)

What I Did: 5.23 miles with Phil in 47:32 (9:06 pace) with a little more confidence in my foot.

Thursday, 1/12:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Tempo 6 miles at 7:26 pace (goal = 3:15 marathon :O ))

What I Did: 7.03 miles (1:04:01; 9:07 pace) easy in an attempt to get back into it again.

Friday, 1/13:
