REPORT: Week One - Boston Marathon Training

2007 First Snow

Easy on the first Bowker Flats as we got our first snow. The neighborhood streets are packed snow, ice, patches of bare and few sanded spots. Next ten went fine trying to maintain 145HR and above, leisurely trying. Last 2.5M on the flats was still slippery and finished up the street at Suffolk to have Garmin say it’s an even 15.0 M.

1st 2.5M@7:30 (18:46)
10M@6:39 (66:30)
2nd 2.5M@6:52 (17:10)

Weekly Review

Total Miles: 75.0
Number of Workouts: 7
Stretching: light on pre-run and most post-runs
Yoga: One
P\U, S\U: falling off

Notes: One week down fifteen to go!
Issues to Note: virus lingers with dry throat through the night and excess phlegm buildup in the morning, pulled right lower back muscle around the 24th, right front shin muscle defined as approximately 1” wide and two inches long of tight\hardened it will hurt if pressed on too hard while thumb massage. Feeling a little from the faster pace and increased miles.
Next Week Goal: See my Training Log

Training: am, 19, fair, BF, Willow Guzzle, BF 15.0m, 1:42:25, 6:49\mi, 150 HR


  1. Good miles. Good pace for the middle 10. You have a nice low heart rate too (assuming your MP heart rate is around 155-160.)

    Really nice pace! Not easy given the slickery conditions. Happy New Year!

    15 weeks to go. Seeing that sent a tingle down my spine. Thanks for the reminder.
