Back to Boston: Boston Marathon Training Week 13 Wrap Up
This may be my final training update for Boston. From here on out there’s not much excitement. It’s a matter of getting in the mileage, some strides twice a week and letting the body heal. It’s better to under-train by 5% than over-train by 1%, especially for masters runners.
53 miles last week with the Caesar Rodney Half Marathon on Sunday where I PR’d with a 1:25:14 tag time.
My biggest concern was how my legs would handle running a half marathon three weeks before Boston. Legs feel good today with little or no DOMS. I have about 55 miles on the schedule this coming week and then two weeks of serious taper.
Less than 3 weeks to Boston.
Standard lower body conditioning routine (See week 5).
