Return to marathon training.

The workout today was 3 X 1 miles. This is the beginning of my training for marathons and is usually a 12 week program. I only have 9 weeks until Lake Waramaug Ultras in Connecticut so it's slightly modified.
Since the conditions outside were not conducive for doing repeats I headed to the Wooster Indoor Track. Ran a mile warm up and then went into the 3 mile repeats at slightly faster than marathon pace (8:00). I usually do these at 7:20 to 7:45. Today they were at 7:50/mi. Finished with a mile cool down. I must be slightly out of shape. Being sick twice in two months surely took it's toll. On On!!!!!!!!!
My wife Betty also went with me and walked 2 miles, so pleased she is getting back to walking.

Great job out there. One month from now you will have no problems getting the miles times. Way to go Betty!
