Marathon Training

Alright! I am 2 weeks into my marathon training plan. It is a modified version of the Sporting Excellence plan and the Hal Higdon plan. Higdon's book "MARATHON--The Ultimate Training Guide" offers some great tips and advice which really breaks it down. The Green Team also outlines a complete program. I just switched rest days around to suit my schedule and unforeseen circumstances. Sometimes I can't adhere to the schedule and have to give myself some room for flexibility. My primary goal is to go the distance at my best and run injury-free.
