Week 1: Complete

Finished week 1 of my formal marathon training program, and I think it went a lot better than I expected. The schedule for the week was:

Run1: 3 Miles Tues
Run2: 4 Miles Wed
Run3: 3 Miles Fri
Run4: 5 Miles Sun

The 5 mile run went really well. I completed the run in 53:00, keeping an average running pace around 10:30. I took two walk/drink breaks, one at 2 miles - and the next at 4 miles.

All in all, felt really good - a bit of soreness at the bases of my calves - but nothing excessive. I think that things are going well, and that my goals here are really attainable.

I'm going to keep my speed about where it is, as it seems to be working for me...and we'll see how it goes. I'm just looking forward to running 3 miles today, because by now, I feel like that's NOTHING!!
