I have steadily built my base up to 60 miles per week keeping the pace at a reasonable level to not injure myself. Marathon training officially starts next week where the weekly runs will stay similar but will build up the weekend long run.

This was a good end to week 1 of marathon training. With the marathon being 4 months out, I feel that I am right where I need to be.
