I finished week 5 of my 26 week training schedule for the Boston Marathon. This was a “cutback” week meaning that the total miles I ran was reduced slightly from last week (17 down from 22). This brings the total to 90 miles run since I started training 5 weeks ago. This Sunday my “long run” will be 11 miles, so wish me luck! In general my endurance is definitely improving although my speed continues to resemble the turtle more than the hare!
So far you have helped raise $1,500 towards my goal of $6,000 for Children’s Hospital and I think that is great progress at this point! If you have not yet had an opportunity to register your sponsorship you can do so here.
