Counting down to the Boston Marathon

Today is officially my first day of Boston Marathon training. The race is on April 20, 2015. This gives me exactly 175 training days. I expect to run 3 times per week from now until race day.

  • Monday – rest days (I will do a light abs or strength exercise)
  • Tuesday – Run (either short or medium run)

  • Thursday – Run (maybe intervals or tempo run)
  • Friday – Swim
  • Saturday – Long run (distances will range from 8 miles to 24 miles)
  • Sunday – Yoga (usually Vinyasa Flow)
