I had a crazy thought this week and booked a marathon!  Ha, what was I thinking?  A third Marathon!!  Okay, so I did it and had a great first week of training, all except for bike miles.

 I'm following an intermediate training plan of Hal Higdon's see it here:  Hal Higdon Intermediate training plan for Marathon.

I chose this because I have done 2 marathons before and I'm running close to the miles in this program some weeks.  Some weeks I have spent more effort on biking or swimming due to triathlon training.  I've decided that I am strong enough to do both Half Iron Olympic training AND this intermediate training for a marathon.   I know going into this that there will be times that my swimming and biking miles will be more of a focus, however those are great cross training miles and I'm okay with that.
