I know I haven’t been blogging for a while but here is what happened during the last 6 weeks of training.
I got legs were consistently tried!!! I decided to dropped my weekly kilometers in half. I continued with my speed work even though I feel like I wasn’t getting any faster. It was tough mentally as I felt burnt out from the heavy training in January and February. =/
Good thing I got an email from the Boston association about training and found a video called “Transcend”. It is a documentary that follows Boston Marathon champion Wesley Korir and how long distance running allowed him to escape the grinding poverty of Kenya. I will not spoil this documentary for you but it really inspired me to push through my wall and continue my training. I highly recommend it.
As I was getting back on track, I also ran the Around the Bay race 30K. This race gave me an idea of how my training was and if I was on par to reach my goal at Boston. I did really well in this race and ran a 2:12:01 (PR). At this point, I felt pretty confident that my training was going according to plan and I really really really just needed from rest days!!
After the Around the bay race, I took it really easy to let me body fully recover for the Boston marathon. The longest run I ran was 23K within the last 3 weeks. Every other runs were from 5-13k. Short and easy runs just to keep my body moving and mentally focused.
Stay tune for my Boston marathon pictures and recap! =)
