putting it together

sunday

Little over 1 week til Boston, it’s starting to get real…

Taking a rest day today, with yesterday’s 5k plus 9 miles and a busy weekend of work, feeling a little run down, rest seemed like the best option.  Too bad because it was a beautiful day, but tomorrow’s supposed to be even better.

Yesterday’s 5k and mileage: Ran a fun 5k on a beautiful cool Saturday morning as a final tune up/speed work for the marathon, and it went very well, winning in 17:23, a 5:36/mile pace.  More importantly, felt strong and in control, running most of the race, after a half mile, by myself.  Went through the first mile in a relatively comfortable 5:25.  Along with the warm up and the add-on afterwards, 12 miles for the day.  A nice way to head into Boston.
