    I like that you take time to rest every other day! Do you do any fartlets?

    Do you feel like you have more energy from starting to work out? I went a week without working out and started feeling so tired at the end of the work day. I have been working out again this week and don’t feel like I am about to fall asleep at my desk.

    I feel the most energized when I run during my lunch hour at our office! BTW, great job on getting an awesome start!

    I’m starting WDW Marathon on Monday! 🙂 So excited. This will be my second marathon (and second WDW Marathon). I did the same thing last year with weekly training updates and I’m SO glad I did because it kept me accountable and I love having the memories and feelings to look back on. It’s going to be awesome. Can’t wait to follow along on your journey, too. I loved reading your Ironman posts. That’s a big goal for me in the future!

    I’m excited to follow your updates! I’m pretty close to where you are right now fitness-wise (my last 5k a few weeks ago was about 37 minutes), and I also run-walk. I’d love to do a longer race (not a marathon, but maybe a half-marathon) one day, so this will be great for me to follow along!

    The biggest accomplishment is getting out the door sometimes! It took me a good long while to get back to pre baby speed, that said, running with the stroller really helped with my speed and strength. So there are some upsides of running with a baby!

    Oh man, I am SO excited for you Meghann!! I love following this kind of stuff, and I know how big of a deal this must be for ya! You’re going to rock it regardless of your time. I’ve yet to do a full marathon, I just don’t know if these knees can take that mileage, but doing the run/walk method seems to work great. Keep at it!

    I have fallen out of the running mojo I once had due to a pregnancy and a 6 month old. I was wonder if you could provide information around running and breastfeeding. Its so tough scheduling things without scheduling around a run and was wondering if there were any special plans you had around breastfeeding.

    I’m kind of in the same boat…I took too much time off and my running has been so sporadic, that when I go out to run the best I can do is run walk.

    Your plan looks great! I might save it for myself if I ever decide to run a marathon again 🙂

    Great going Meghann…Can I suggest doing a 1min run/30 second walk… That’s truthfully what 2:1 has become in the last few years… You will not run any slower… guaranteed and you might actually find yourself going a bit faster. I will also switch to 30:30 if I’m feeling a bit off. Got a 19 miler tomorrow… Definitely a little apprehensive and I’ve been running all along. You GO girl!!

    You’re going to rock it! Even though I’m slower, hope to see you there (I’m running Dopey!)

    I’m very excited to follow along on your updates! My little guy is turning one next week and I feel like I never quite got back up to speed since having him so I’m also doing a run/walk plan right now for a half marathon. Can’t wait to see your progress!! All the best from another mom runner 🙂
