Marathon Training Journal: Day 11

Thursday means hill repeats. At least, until the program switches things around so I don’t get too comfortable in a routine. Who would want to be comfortable in marathon training?

Marathon Training Journal: Day 3

Training Journal Day 3: I am still feeling a bit sore … alright then, really sore … from Monday and yesterday’s hard repeats didn’t do much to help. In fact, they didn’t help at all. I guess that means they are doing what they should: waking up some lazy muscle groups!

Marathon Training Journal: Day 1

This is the first official day of my training program, although I set yesterday as my start date. Marathon Training, Day 1.  Let the fun begin!
