Yesterday, I got sent an email asking if I would be interested in filling out a survey about the 2014 Boston Marathon. The survey is a part of a series of articles for the Boston Magazine Boston Marathon edition for this year. Hopefully, some of my responses will be in there!
Today at the gym, I did a speed workout on the treadmill for about an hour. Here is my work out:
1 mile warm up at 5.7 mph
Reset treadmill 2 minutes running at 6.7 mph
1 minute recovery at 5.7 mph
Repeat 15 more times
On the 5th time repeat move it to 6.8 mph
At the end of my speed workout, I ran 6.07 miles at a pace of 8:37. I have never been able to do such a low pace in my life. I will be doing a speed workout on the treadmill every Wednesday at the gym until the marathon. This workout will help my endurance.
Next week my speed workout will be:
1-5 times will be at 6.7 mph
6-10 times will be at 6.8 mph
11-15 times will be at 6.9 mph
16-20 times will be at 7.0 mph
Tonight I attended my second DFMC meeting. Before the meeting, I recorded Â my â€œWhy I Runâ€ video. In the video I will be discussed who I am running the Boston Marathon for and where the money I am fundraising is going towards. This video will be a key part of my fundraising campaign for the marathon.
During, the meeting we will be discussing fundraising tips and upcoming events. I look forward to seeing everyone outside of a group run.
