Marathon Training Week One

My first official week (actually 11 days) went really well. So far I am well under my scheduled training mileage as I missed my first 12 mile run and then had to be on the road for work. Nonetheless, I did get an excellent Interval run (fartlek for you fellow runners) on the treadmill while I was in Columbia, Mo. So for Week One tally up 13.2 miles, which is 21.8 miles below of what I had scheduled! Yikes.

Bernie, Elba, Tita Angie, Victoria and Brian visited us this past weekend and we had lots of fun. I think Jen and Victoria had the most fun since they shopped for hours and hours. Skip was pretty happy because of all the attention he received, it was the “never ending fetch day”. We’ll be going to Loris this weekend for Will’s first birthday, which means we will return with pictures and be able to show everyone how grown he is.
