So Boston training has officially started. I decided to go with the Pfitzinger 10 weeks between marathons plan since I just paced Tampa and ran the 50k a few weeks before that.
Week 1 of the plan called for four runs totaling 22 miles for the week as well as three rest days with optional cross training. All runs were to be done at recovery pace.
Tuesday- AM: 5 miles treadmill 9:17 pace (Planned 5) with Daisy
Lunch 60 minutes of yoga with Daisy
Wednesday- Rest (In Indiana for work)
Thursday- Light Ab workout (In Indiana for work)
Friday- 45 minute run around downtown with Salty (Planned 5)
Saturday- 5.4 mile run from the in-laws 9:05 pace. Probably too many hills to really be called a recovery run. (Planned 5) Light ab workout following run
Sunday- 6.75 miles in Solon with Daisy. Icy and light rain. 8:55 pace
Left shoulder has been stiff my last three runs and since yesterday I've developed a crick in my neck and what I assume is a pinched nerve in my middle back. Not sure what has me so out of whack but I will be enjoying the last week of "restful/recovery training" and will try not to irritate my back and neck.
