Happy Monday Everyone!
A few highlights from this weekend before we get to the good stuff…
Yesterday was my father-in-law’s birthday and Henri’s uncle brought him this Yard-of-Chocolate. He knows what’s up!
Yesterday morning Henri and I had nutella-banana stuffed french toast for breakfast. I’ve made this many times over the past few months and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites! Its almost as good as a banana-nutella crepe – with about half as much work! 😉
Okay, so, onto the meat of this post.
Today marks exactly 15 weeks until the 118th Boston Marathon and the first day of my official training plan for the race. Its time to get to work!
I worked with my boss/coach to put together the following training plan for Boston. This is what the next 16 weeks of my
life training will look like.
FYI: Easy: > 7:30 l Medium: 7:00-7:30 l Marathon Goal Pace: 6:40
I am really excited to
overshare about my marathon training, but in my years of running I have learned that there is much more to training than just running. Over the past few days I came up with a list of the many other important things that factor into good training.
- Mid-run Fueling
- Dynamic Warm-ups
- Core Stability
- Ice Baths/Hot Tubs
During the next 15 weeks I’m going to be doing a mini-series called “Marathon Training – Beyond the Miles” where I will discuss each of these factors in detail. I’ll be starting this week with hydration – on Wednesday. Make sure you don’t miss out!
I’m looking forward to these next 15 weeks. BOSTON HERE I COME! 🙂
Anyone else training for Boston (or another spring marathon)?
Do you like to use a strict training schedule for a race or do you make it up as you go?
