Road to Boston - Week 5 Training Update

Each week the days get longer and my runs end with just a little more daylight.  I can't believe that I'm already fie weeks into the training for Boston.  I really need to get serious about making travel arrangements - I've not done anything yet other than talk about it.  We are considering flying into New York and taking the train up to Boston so we can get a train ride in at the same time.

Okay - now a summary of this week's miles -

Monday – January 24, 2011 - rest
Tuesday - January 25, 2011 – 7.30 - hills
Wednesday – January 26, 2011 – 8.08 - speed
Thursday – January 27, 2011 – 8.13 - easy
Friday – January 28, 2011 – 11.0
Saturday – January 29, 2011 – rest
Sunday – January 30, 2011 – 20.3 long run

Weekly total: 54.81

Cumulative total: 226.08

Here is a map of may last long run of 20.3 miles.  It's the first time that I ran north from our place and up to the airport.  I have found one drawback to the Nike Plus system.  It drained my iPhone and by mile 18.8 the iPhone died.  I guess I'll be using the Garmin after all for the long runs.

Hard to believe that as I write this I'm only two runs away from completing week six!  Boston is coming right up!
