Sunday: Treadmill again! 6 miles easy, 8 miles at planned marathon pace. 2 easy. 16 total
Total: 66.3 miles and three core sessions.
Great week. Ending up with three treadmill sessions wasn't planned but with crappy weather (rain and snow) off and on through Friday I knew just getting some speed would be better for my Boston build up rather than tweaking something at this point. I am wandering if this treadmill sessions are going to catch up to me eventually. Anyone have any long-term experience with this? Some people say the treadmill is so boring but i find you only make it as boring as you want. It's great for mental toughness when you can just play around with the incline and speed. Feeling tired? RUN MORE!
Play hard, RUN HARDER
