Friday: 6 mile run with Annie in Solana Beach
Run details: 6m, 51:29, 8:40/mi

Annie¬†works for Graced By Grit and has run Boston before. We talked about the course and how the first few miles are downhill. After talking with her we came up with a game plan for me. I will be in Wave 4¬†which is the 3:50 marathon time, so for the first few downhill miles I’m shooting for a 8:15-8:20 pace and then from there I’ll settle into my goal pace of 8:30-8:35. Not an extensive plan, but it’s simple. I want to focus on the experience, the crowd, the happiness of just running an epic race.

Saturday: Rest

Sunday: Rest

I planned on running 14-16 miles with a SD running group but I had to study all weekend for a Physiology test on muscles. I was bummed I couldn’t get outside, but at least I was learning about something that interested me! We learned about muscle contractions and how important Calcium is, fast twitch muscles, slow twitch, and lactic acid buildup. And I ended up getting an A on this test, so I made the right choice of studying all weekend!!!

Total:  16 miles
