Chicago Marathon training: T-minus nothing

It begins tomorrow. Marathon training, week 1. Because I can handle the high mileage, I'm going with the Hal Hidgon Advanced I program. It starts at 30ish miles so my mileage will actually go down, which is not a bad thing cause I'll have to ride out the summer any ways. I'm going to tweak this week, though. I'll do a 5 miler (8K) on Monday, a 3 miler on Tuesday and Wednesday, I have a 5 mile race in which I intend to haul ass (if i can)... So much for programs..

Good luck buddy! My training started today with a 14k/9mi run. Was a hot one too. Love coming home and going over the data from the Garmin. Oh yeah, many other runners in the group told me they wanted to get into Chicago but were too late. We are the lucky ones! -Frank

So I think we're all waiting for Frankie to start his blog. You can start with a review of the 305 Forerunner. I ordered mine and it should be in the mail..
