Dublin Marathon training has begun
It is official. I have signed up for the Dublin Marathon in October. My training has started. Ran 13 miles today. Weeks mileage up to 37 miles. Taking suggestions from both Daniels and Pfizigers programs for an 18 week program. Will keep the P90x program in the mix as well as incorporating some barefoot running. I really became a believer in the benefits of barefoot running after reading "Born to Run". Fantastic book. Getting the long runs in before the Florida heat gets to bad will be one of the major challenges. Today I felt great but we ran pretty slow. I have been concentrating on form over speed and it seems to be working already with the near absence of knee pain.
