So it is official. I have a marathon training plan! Thanks to Runners World, and more importantly, lots of tweaking from Coach M (http://bonkproof.com/) who has been nice enough to lend me some of his marathon training advice. Parts of it seem pretty aggressive (THREE 20 mile runs??) but most of it seems really doable. I'm already doing weekly speed workouts, and for three weeks prior to the Brooklyn Half I had already been doing 20-23 miles per week. I'm really excited to start training, but I know those long runs will kick my butt--at least in the beginning, and honestly, I'm just choosing to not think about them right now rather than psych myself out.
And then we head into August and its first week of 25 miles, which will be my highest mileage week ever. I'm looking forward to documenting the adventure ahead of me!
