Boston Bound.

Well my first “official” week of training for the Boston marathon is done. Only 11 more weeks of training until the 2010 Boston Marathon!  I am using a Hal Higdon plan specifically for Boston.  I used his plan last year and it worked well.  I am taking off one of the easy run days and making it a swim.  So 5 days of running.  I ran a 6 mile pace run on Thursday, a 5 mile Tempo run yesterday, and 12 miles this morning.  My legs are tired.  I am definitely splitting up these work outs next week.   My hope is to make it to Boston uninjured and run a good race and have fun!  Secretly I would like to run a 3:30.  But I can’t be too hasty.


  1. Good luck in your build-up! I’m training for the Illinios Half Marathon and hoping the training will give me a nice base for some good summer races. I’m finishing grad school in June and I’m going to try to hit some SRRC races since I missed ALL of them last year!
