Week 7 Boston Marathon Training

WEEK 7 TRAINING

This was a solid week of training!

I miss all the cross training I used to do, mainly lifting and cycling. I plan to make an effort to incorporate it more.

My weekly mileage feels low, but honestly it’s been hard to find the time. I have a very demanding school schedule that requires a lot of studying (physiology, advanced nutrition, and biochemistry). But, every week I have a chance to start fresh and juggle my time better. I have a goal and I plan to do everything I can to reach it!! 7 weeks until Boston!!
