Boston training week 4 + Meal Planning

This was a fun week! The weather improved, my parents came to give us a night out this weekend, and I wrapped it up with a trail race on Saturday.

Week 4 already of Boston training!

Monday :  10 easy will rolling hills- a great Boston imitator with the first half downhill and the second half uphill (8:21 ave)

Tuesday: 4 easy miles (9:20s) + 20 minute pool run

Wednesday: 10 miles with some speed mixed in (2 warm up, 3 x 1 mile with 200m jog 6:45, 6:36, 6:44; 2 x 800m (3:13, 3:15); 2 x 400m (1:28, 1:32) and cool down)

This run felt hard from the start and I really wasn’t feeling it but I pushed through anyway.  Hopefully that means a better track workout next time!

Thursday: am strength workout + 4 mile walk/jog with a friend (2 miles of jogging total)

Friday: 8 easy (8:10 ave)

A beautiful, sunny day! My legs just wanted to go.

Saturday: Trail race!

This was fun! Other than wiping out and bruising my knee, I had a blast.  I did the 3 hour option for about 16 miles total.  I’ll share more details on the race later this week.


Sunday:  rest

What I’m making this week…

First 50 mile week done for this cycle.  This is a cut back week so I’m hoping my knee heals quickly so I don’t miss too much time!

Have you ever done a trail race?


I’m linking up with Wendy and HoHo from The Weekly Wrap.

  1. Oh, no. I hope your knee isn’t banged up too badly. I have done a few short trail races. With my recent foot issues though, I probably will not do another — I need the smoothest surface I can find. How nice for your parents to visit and let the parents have a night out! Thanks for linking.
