Well.. the official - unofficial 19 week training plan for the Rocket City Marathon has official ended.
The reason I say unofficial is because the Hal Higdon plan is really 18 weeks and that is really starts tomorrow. So it all starts tomorrow and I am going to do my best to stick to the plan and the latitude that Hal gives me in my pacing goals. I'll give myself a B+ this week. Four of the days my training partner and I did good. But the cooler temps on Saturday had me kinda froggy and so I jumped..and we did mostly negative splits but I think I needed to do this to get a control point on where I am at the beginning of the training.
Confession: Having never run a marathon.. I don't know what it takes to train for one.. so I am trusting that the Higdon Intermediate plan is enough to get me to the finish line...
