Boston Marathon Training: Weeks 9 & 10

Hi, friends!

The weeks are really starting to dwindle down to marathon day. Of course, I am super excited, but I am nervous at the same time. Ahhh! So many butterflies!

After my 17-miler earlier this week, I was feeling pretty good, but then I started to think about the remaining mileage in the race. There are still 9+ miles to the finish line. That’s a lot of running! Yikes. I have two 3-hour runs in the coming weeks, so, hopefully, they will make me feel a lot more confident.

Boston Marathon Training: Weeks 7 & 8


  1. Lots of running! So you’re getting in four runs a week now? How are the legs? I’m just in awe of anyone that can run that much and fair play for keeping up KFIT while your doing it, no mean feat!

  2. What’s your marathon goal time?? What’s your PR? I hope you have gratitude for how lucky you are to get to run Boston!!

  3. Part of my marathon training was mental. During my training runs and even when running a marathon, I talked myslef through the miles. When I hit mile 18, I thought “8+ miles! I’m in the single digits to finishing! Whats another 8 miles!” Ha! I used a similar mentality when I was in labor…the mind can be a powerful tool!

  4. Good luck with all the running! I admire you so much for doing it! I know I couldn’t do it. I just don’t have the discipline. But I think it’s so great you are doing it! 🙂

  5. Thanks for sharing! I love your blog! With all of that running, what are you favorite stretches? I often suffer from “runners knee” with several runs in a week and am working on stretching my IT band. How do you do it?

  6. I’m sure you’ve gotten this question a lot…but did you stop doing the open? Some of the workouts are a bit off-putting this year, so if I was in the midst of marathon training I’d probably do the same! I’d love to do a marathon some day, but I’m wondering if I should plan to take a few months off from CrossFit. Great work so far!!

    1. It’s been tough with marathon training. I didn’t have time to do 15.2 (busy weekend + a much-needed rest day) and 15.3 started with muscles-up, which I can’t do and half of my box has the flu, so I didn’t bother with the scaled version either. Hopefully, I’ll get 15.4 done! 🙂
