Monday, 1/16:

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

What I Did: 7.58 miles in 1:16:07 (10:02 pace). My legs felt totally trashed after yesterday’s run, so I was surprised that I wanted to get out there today (except our loooong work day that felt like SUCH a Monday makes it less surprising).

Tuesday, 1/17:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Speed 4 x 1200 in 4:42-4:50 (5k goal of 19:30-20:00))

What I Did: Didn’t feel as strong as I wish I could on this run, but in retrospect my paces were pretty good: 6:08-6:25!

1.8 mile warm-up

4 x 0.75 miles with 0.25 miles rest on treadmill: 4:49, 4:45, 4:37, 4:36 (skipped last 0.25 rest because I was readyyyy to get off that darn treadmill!)

2.53 mile cool-down

8.08 miles total

Wednesday, 1/18:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: OFF)

What I Did: OFF

Thursday, 1/19:

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

What I Did:

2.15 mile warm-up

7 mile tempo in 48:27 (6:55 pace; 7:07, 7:06, 7:03, 6:56, 6:53, 6:50, 6:28)

3.41 mile cool-down

12.56 miles total

Friday, 1/20: 

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

What I Did: 6.18 miles in 1:03:58 (10:21 pace). Friday runs are always the toughest after a long week of hard runs! Got out a little late due to an emergency c-section, but what a way to end the OB portion of this rotation!

Saturday, 1/21:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Easy 10 miles)

What I Did: 10.07 miles in 1:27:52 (8:43 pace). Got in 4ish miles on my own, then did the last 6 with Fiona (@adktrigirl), which was the first time meeting her! Ran substantially faster with her than on my own (was rocking the 9:30-10 minute pace, then ran 8:18, 8:24, 8:24, 8:06, 8:06, 8:02 with Fiona LOL), but legs felt okay!

Sunday, 1/22:

(What I Was Supposed to Do: Easy 8 miles)

What I Did: Got ditched by my friend Luke and re-planned to run with Phil who also ditched me for more sleep, so did this one solo! Whenever I run by myself, I’m pretty sure I just default to a slower pace: 8.50 miles in 1:23:46 (9:51 pace).


Total Weekly Mileage = 52.89 miles

Total Boston Training Mileage = 236 miles
