After what seemed like a pretty long week and an even longer drive home (nothing like averaging 40mph for 180 miles, with 4 kids who have stayed up too late for several nights in a row yet refuse to nap... even in the car), I'm happy to be home. We had a great time on the coast, then spending time with grandparents, sledding, making cookies and all kinds of good things (that I'll blog about soon... hopefully). Tonight I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed (and my kids sleeping in theirs) then spending some time tomorrow catching up on blogs, figuring out my marathon training plan and getting some goals figured out for the new year. Until then here's some of the beautiful scenery I saw today. Yes, I know, driving on ice while taking pictures with my phone probably not the smartest thing, but trust me, we were barely moving.
Do you have a great (free) marathon training program that you would suggest? How long of a program do you usually do? I'm looking at 16 weeks with a pretty decent base already built up, I hope that's adequate.
