Week 1 - Marathon Training

So, marathon training officially started this week.   I am feeling pretty confident at this point.   The only thing that may hinder my mileage is my work hours.   I figure as long as I can get in at least 3 runs a week and keep my long runs consistent with the training program, I should be golden.  I can now say..."I am training for a marathon."   That feels pretty damn good.  Physically, I haven't felt this good in a long time.   All the hip flexor and calf/shin issues I was having earlier in the year seem to be subsided for the most part.  My toenails are growing back from that wicked Lansing Half Marathon in April.   Feeling good!
