Week 6 of Training for the Boston Marathon

Perhaps appropriately I ended off week 6 of my training with a long run over 20 km this morning followed by going to watch Patriot’s Day tonight. I was pleased with both. It felt good to get In a run of over 20 km since I had not completed one in a while. As for the movie, I found it to be better than I expected.

Overall, my week saw a slight improvement in terms of mileage over last week. Last week I finished with just under 55 km while this week I finished with just over 60 km. Ideally I would be getting in more mileage at this point in my training but given I had to take a break over the holidays I am not concerned. 

One positive for this week is that I managed to get out for my first set of indoor intervals. This week my workout involved a series of 600m repeats due to a temporary track configuration I mentioned the other night. As a result my overall mileage for the night only came to 3.6 km. It was still a positive workout since I will be continuing to add weekly intervals to my training…


As for this morning, it was cold but not as cold as I expected it would be. It actually turned out to be a great morning for a long run. I managed 21 km this time…


My goal for week 7 will of course be to add more mileage to my totals. 

How did your week go?
