    I passed two of my records today: miles per month (one day left) and miles per year (thirty two days left).  Marathon training is going great!!

      Way to go PRE!  I plan to break 200 for the first time tomorrow morning.  This is a whole new level of commitment, but it feels good.


      Looks like your marathon PR was Colorado last May.  Is that the race you're training for now?


      If I can ask, how many miles/week are you working toward?  I'm trying to figure out a plan for my first attempt (May 2010 Flying Pig).


      Good luck - Andy

        I am currently training for the Eugene marathon at the end of April.  I dont go for miles per week, I try to run by time, 40 to 45 minutes per day and on Saturdays (long days) go one hour, and try increase by five each week.  Right now I am up to 1 hour and 30 minutes.  At The peak of my training I should be around 2 hours to 2 and a half hours on the long runs.

          Interesting post!  I have switched from running only to walk/running, and have had two 280+ months.  I walk about 2/3 of them.  I cannot dream of only running such distances in a month.  (I used to run 42-45 mpw.)
