Spring Break & Marathon Training

I would like to apologize for my absence the last couple weeks. I'm a teacher and this last push before Spring Break has been really hectic professionally and privately. Like - bashing my head against a wall busy (training for Boston, a baby, a funeral, a broken car, life.) But the glorious day has arrived; IT IS SPRING BREAK! HELLS YES. 9 days. No children. No co-workers. Good sleep. Good food. MILES, MILES, MILES. Amen.

My plans over break are going to be almost entirely geared toward my training. I am looking forward to having the time to focus. My long runs are up to 20 miles (comfortable miles) - but I still need to get in some more hills/speed work in the last few weeks before taper.  
                  FIVE WEEKS...WHAT?!

I also have a massive back-log of recipes and blog posts to get up, so watch for that! (Especially the story about my creepy brush with a kidnapping pervert. Oy.)

How your training going through the doldrums of this sloppy winter to spring transition? Hang in there!
