Training Update: Week of July 16, 23, and 30, August 6

Whoops. Four weeks of training not written about? What happened to my resolution to be more on top of blogging in July? Apparently I started strong and then had a MASSIVE fail. But I guess I can do what I can to correct this now, and that is all I can do?
Somehow, we are down to 47 days until the marathon. That is terrifying. I am scared, but I am also really excited. And I am suddenly starting to feel prepared. I went from feeling not at all ready, to feeling like maybe, just maybe, my endurance is better than I thought it is.

But I guess I have 4 weeks worth of training to examine right now. So maybe I should start there, and reflect a bit before we really get too concerned or worried about where I am for training. So let's get to it.
