Ready to get into my Boston training mode. Saturdays will be "spin" days and today was such a great day for an outdoor ride.
14.98miles in 1:13:11. Avg speed: 12.28 mph. Avg HR: 145
*still can't get cadence to work with GPS. didn't want to waste time messing with it today but will try to take the bike out a few times this week to try to get it to work.

Another great day of gorgeous weather. Training plan called for 8 miles today. Since I hadn't run all week, I was ok not hitting the full 8. A little discrepancy between TomTom and RunKeeper, mainly because I started RunKeeper as soon as I met up with Jason, and TomTom once we actually started running in the park. So there was about a mile of walking warm up :) Intervals of 3:00/0:45.
TomTom: 6.54miles in 1:21:35. Avg pace: 12:28mm
RunKeeper: 7.77miles in 1:34:05. Avg pace: 12:05mm

Back on schedule, so today is a rest day.

However, I realized there was a gaping hole in my plan: not one week was devoted to talking about a training partner you can't buy. I love having the products I'm highlighting as training partners, but the best training partner that anyone can have is the one I want to talk about today. That training partner would be: another human being! So this week I want to talk a little about my human training partners and how much they mean to me.

I am beyond excited that as I turn my attention to Boston, I will be running with Linzie and Adam on that hallowed course, and we will be checking in with each other and training together to reach that finish line on Boylston. I have also really valued the last 5 weeks of training and being able to have Jason join me for my long runs. We've explored some new locations around town together, and it gives us a great chance to catch up, vent about the crap of life, and recharge ourselves for the coming week. Jason is considering his own first full marathon, and I hope that I can continue to be there to cheer him on, no matter which finish line he chooses to cross after 26.2 miles.

6-8 miles in Piedmont Park this week.
