So after coming off of an injury that prevented me from running for 3+ weeks, I had to reassess my training schedule to still be able to safely reach 26.2 miles by April 19th! I feel much better after looking at this because I think it’s still do-able. I lost some recovery runs in between my really long runs, but as long as I diligently keep up with the stretching, icing and strength training, I should be ok.
Here’s what my plan is looking like now:
I decided to do the LA Marathon as a “training” run for Boston. I’m going to push myself at Marathon Pace for 20 of those miles, and then walk the last 6.2. It’s going to be hard to not want to run it for time, but since it’s 4 weeks from Boston, I cant risk an injury. If I have to do a 20 mile training run, you might as well get a medal for it, right?
