Training Schedule / Introduction

Monday, April 12, 2010

I've been training for 3 weeks at this point, but I'm starting to find my motivation to run a little lacking.  So I've decided to start this blog to keep me going!  I've also decided I'm going to run the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon on October 3, 2010.  I have a very realistic yet aggressive training schedule, but I know I can do it!  My goal for this marathon is to finish.  I will work on times for the next ones. :)  I'm going to continually update this post with actual times, paces and mileages.

Here is my training schedule:

Wow first let me say I think it's great that your going to be working towards a marathon (1/2 marathon is all I think I have in me) and it looks like you have your training pretty well mapped out.
