This program is designed by Hal Higdon, I've used his schedules before, none of which were this hard. Today I did my 7 miles on a route that I've only ever driven. It was full of hills and wound through the back roads of Watauga. Tomorrow's a 3 mile day, I'm not sure where I'll be running, but I will be running if you'd like to join me.

-well alright-

well i think it would take me a month or two at least before I'm in any shape to attempt your training schedule there, but i would like to attampt a real marathon next summer, so we'll see. And yes, i believe canton is about 1/2 an hour from Navarre, where we will be, probably july 30th - aug10th. don't know if that is too late in july for you, but if not it would be awesome to see you and meet your wife
