Boston training will begin around the end of the year. I am going to approach this year a little different then in years past. I am going to modify my schedule a bit this year to include more swimming and lifting then in years past. Also I am going to modify my schedule to keep the miles in check. In past years I have run several high mileage weeks and I know this caused my back to flare up. Recovery is also important. I have to stress the importance of stretching and recovery. I even purchased a pair of recover socks to help in this process. I think this approach should keep me healthy through my training. I plan on keeping a base of 20-25 miles until the end of the year. I was sick for over 2 months so 8-12 weeks of rebuilding should give me a nice base to begin training for Boston.
