16 Week Marathon Plan - Week 1, Day 2

I found a marathon training plan that I will use until I come across something new. I'm going to use TrainingPeaks.com as the plan. It looks like a good hard plan with a lot of good run days with specific workouts. It is 16 weeks long, which is perfect and it actually follows what I was planning on doing for the first few weeks anyway! Very excited about my choice and will continue to blog my progress in hopes I can learn from the effort and come back to read my random thoughts along the way.

Dallas White Rock Marathon Training
Day: Week 1, Day 1
Time: 5:30am
Temp: 81F
Workout: Easy Pace
Distance: 4.35 Miles
AVG Pace: 7:48

Summary
Got out today at 5:30am again. Good times. It was not as hard to get up this morning because I knew what needed to get done. The first mile was very easy and I kept that pace throughout the run. I felt good, the weather was cooler than it had been so that was a nice change.

Tomorrow I've got about 6 more miles to run so I'm looking forward to a little more distance to add and a few more happy miles.
