I am currently 10 weeks into a 16 week half marathon plan. If all goes well, I will be running a half in early January. The most difficult part thus far, has been juggling workouts with my crazy work schedule. Sometimes doing tempo and long runs much to close together. However I do feel pretty good most of the time. It has kinda been a trial to see if I can manage marathon training with my work schedule. The jury is still out on that one. But running a marathon is still my ultimate goal as far as running goes. Hopefully not to far in the future.
