And now she is approaching 6 months old! SAY WHAT! The time has sure flown by!! With my older boys school/sports/life schedules, a newborn, marathon training, working night shift, and coaching HS lacrosse ... blogging definitely took a back seat.
Sooooo since the Boston Marathon is 2 weeks away I figured I should update my plan! Training has been going well and adjusting to my crazy "mom of 3" life had been awesome....but I have to say I am nowhere near where I want to be for a PR race! Training wise my runs have been pretty great, my pace isn't too far off from where I need to be but it has been a balancing act to try to fit in my long, long runs ( anything over 13 miles ). I had a solid 22.5 miles last Saturday that felt amazing and I did it in 2:57:01 that time includes a 7 minute breastfeeding break ( hubby brought kids to park where I was running, I hopped in fed the baby and ran right back out ). Breastfeeding has been going great and luckily I have a great supply even with marathon training. I have to be honest, this was a huge concern for me and I was not willing to risk my milk supply or miss a feeding for a long run or a goal time!! So I have accepted that this year Boston will be my comeback marathon but probably not a PR race for me! Will I finish? I hope so. Will I have fun? Heck Yes! Will I embrace the experience and seeing my fellow Oiselle runners? Absolutely!
There are a lot of factors that I am still worried about but I know once we get to Boylston Street it will all be worth it!
Who else is running Boston this year??
Are you where you want to be in your training?
