I am not complaining. I made this schedule and I love it. I am just painting a pretty picture of my non-blogging life currently. As my Hells Angels uncle says - keep life over 120 mph. Wise words from a Harley riding poet. The good news is I officially started marathon training. Week 2 looked like this:
Week 2 (technically my first week but I am starting my 16 week training plan on week 2 so it doesn't get confusing)
Mon - Rest
Tues - Trackmill workout: 1 mile warmup @6.0 (1.0 incline), 12 x 200's @7.6 (7:53 min/mile), 200 cooldown after each, 1 mile cooldown @6.0 - Watched Survivor
Wed - Four early morning miles that I slogged through at a very slow pace - was sore from pushing too hard on Tues.
Thurs - Five Miles @ 9:15 pace, felt much better
Fri - Rest / drove to Yosemite
Sat - 8 mile hike to Nevada Falls (straight up & down)
Sun - 5 mile hike to Mirror Lake (flat) & drove home
I am missing a long run on Sunday but after 13 miles of hiking my hips were shot so as planned I skipped the 10 miler for last week and will begin the long runs starting this Sunday in Bend. It's going to be a frigid 20 degrees.

|Mondavi in Napa|
|Sunset at Spanish Bay in Monterey|
|Camping in Yosemite - 28 degrees.|
Anyone else feel like 2014 is tomorrow?
