This will be a quick one, but I wanted to let everyone know that marathon training for the 2009 Chicago Marathon started today. Woo hoo. I'll get some more details regarding my training specifics and the fundraising to raise awareness of SMA as the week progresses.
Today's run was a recovery run - 5.2 miles at a 9:34 pace with and average heart rate of 127. Learning how to run these recovery runs at a slow pace will take some time getting used to, but should pay off tremendously as this 18 week training cycle starts firing on all cylinders.
