The delay in posting last weeks mileage is due to the fact that it is spring break here in Oregon (so sorry to my friends still covered in snow!) and we’ve been off having adventures! (Pics can be found on my Instagram page.)
Last week turned out to be a pretty great training week, culminating in a 21-mile run on Sunday. My longest training run ever! This week, things are off to a shaky start but I’m remaining optimistic. For the first time this training cycle, I opted to take a unprescribed rest day. My SI joint-related issues flared up a bit and I’m trying to play it smart and safe. Reactive, yes. But I’d rather react now than to push through the pain and find myself in a much worse state closer to race day.
Speaking of race day… the Boston Marathon is in 26 days!!!!!!!!!!!
