    yay for training schedules! mine is much less high tech than yours (hand written on a giant piece of paper taped to my fridge) but I love checking each run off as I complete that day’s milage!

    Have you considered running a few miles during your ski vacation? I know it’s during taper time, but running at altitude is awesome for training. I live a Mile High, so I already get that awesome advantage. When I run at sea level I could go for hours without even needing to catch my breath!

      My family skis pretty intensely on vacation. As in we are there when the lifts open at 8:30am and ski until they close at 4:30. We hold the schedule for 5 days in a row of vacation! We are also renting a cabin in the mountains where I will not be familiar with the roads, not be accustomed to running colder weather and it will be dark before we leave and after. 🙁 I’ve thought long and hard about it an dI really don’t see running on this vacation as plausible. *sniff*sniff

    I totes nominated you in a few categories, don’t you worry!

    Your training plan looks awesome! I am much impressed by all the speedwork you have fit in there. I am just focusing on distance with my plan, as the goal is just to cross the finish line this time!

    Isn’t booking travel so fun? I just booked my flight to SF for the Foodbuzz Festival as well. Flights during this weekend were super cheap. Hope to see you there… want to arrange a meet-up? Feel free to email me at afeteforfood@gmail.com

    I’ll be sure to vote for your Healthy Living Blog!

    Best of luck on your marathon training!

    My high school cross country coach has us run 60 miles the first week of training (for 5ks!!). We did double sessions meaning 5 miles in the morning and 5 again in the afternoon for 6 days straight. He was a nutcase and I now can’t run at all due to knee problems. Anyway, what I’m saying is your plan looks great and I’m glad you’re sticking to a max of 40 miles a week. Best of luck!

    I’m also going to the Foodbuzz festival. I can’t wait!

    The egg white, jam, and pumpkin biscuit looks like a really interesting combo. I like egg whites dipped in syrup, so I bet I would like them with jam.

    Great way to start the training! I’ve never been to California before, let alone San Francisco! I am sure you’ll have a great time! 😀

    I’ll vote for you! 😀

    I’m glad that you’re excited to start training!! That’s a good thing, not weird at all since you love running so much 🙂

    I cannot imagine hammering out a marathon training schedule, it would take so much work! I agree, it’s totally got to be suited to your specific needs. I think it’s important to have a little wiggle room in there too. Besides you’re an old pro at marathons by now 😉

    Good LUCK with your training. I have already voted for my fav bloggers…. I recall this great blog about ”Inner Workings” 😉

    I totally get being excited for long Tempo Runs! I link tempo and speed intervals. They are harder, and you have to concentrate more to hit pace. Its kinda like a game really. So exciting that today is Day1 of marathon training!

    I’m going! I just started my blog, but when I saw the information for the FoodBuzz Festival, I knew I had to go. (I live in SF, which makes it easier.) 🙂

    That festival sounds like so much fun, I can’t wait to check out the links! Unfortunetly, I’m not going 🙁 But I can’t wait to hear all about it!

    I love how creative you get with your foods. I need to be more adventerous I think.

    Good luck with your marathon training, Meghann! I’ve never posted here before, but I just wanted to jump in and say that I truly enjoy reading your blog. My husband is training for the Marine Corps marathon and like you, his long runs are reserved for Sundays. With a crazy summer schedule, he had to run on vacation and in some unfamiliar locations. Even if you can’t run during your ski vacation, you’ll get a fabulous workout anyway.

    Congrats on starting your training! I start my 10k training today….which I might end up turning into a 1/2 marathon training if I can hack it…I made up a good schedule (for me) to get me to the half, but I’m not sure at this point I can do it (I’m like, a 3 miles, 1-2x a week kinda gal but that changes starting today!).

    I am not sure if they told you (foodbuzz) but the best kept secret about San Francisco is the weather in the fall months…the. Best Ever! You will have a great time there is so much to see and EAT and I think it is the best City ever to run in! I will be running all those hills in the Nike 1/2 marathon next month! have fun
