Marathon Training – End of Week 3

Today marks the end of our third week for training for the Space Coast Marathon that will take place the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I am happy to say that I have been able to pretty much stick with the training schedule. I’ve missed a couple of days, and had to rearrange some days, but that is to be expected when you have 3 young children, the start of a new school year, and a temperamental fridge that has cost several hours of work!

We chose to follow the intermediate plan of Hal Higdon. Here is the 18-week plan:
