Slowest marathon training plan ever...

I have officially started into my Goofy Challenge marathon training.

Which meant that I ran a whole 3 miles this morning.
3.25 miles, even.
I already mentioned this previously- but my lungs are still trying to adjust
to this running outside again thing.

My legs feel like they could keep on going, but my lungs are feeling the burn. 
 I guess it will just take some time to get them acclimated again.
 All these hills in my neighborhood will be a fun way to get that done. 

I'm not sure this marathon plan will get me prepared
to run a half marathon on one day- and then a full marathon...
the very next day.
I don't really have a choice, though :).
This is how it has to be.
Slow and steady.

All will be well- so I shall tell myself.
I'm really good at convincing myself that everything will be fine ;).
What can I say... 
I'm usually right.
Except when I'm not.  

Also... boy face!

I have missed a couple of posts, so excited for you that you are running again:). Wait a year and we can do the Goofy Challege together. Seriously though I know all to well the frustration of injury and I am so happy for you!

That's so exciting that you've started training officially! It makes it seem that much closer, and yet it still doesn't seem real to me. I'm thinking once I run my marathon in October, I'll have to jump in on your plan... I just might be too lazy to come up with my own:)
Cute boy face!

I do not think that they make a training plan that could prepare you for "Goofy!" lol slow and steady is a smart plan.
