----It has been nice to workout longer now. I have been getting up earlier to make it a priority and I really enjoy it. I seem to really get into a zone after 40 minutes.

---Was SO nice to get back out this morning. After we got seriously dumped on this last weekend, I was wondering how the sidewalks would be. For the most part, everyone has done a great job of having their walks and driveways clear, though there were a few spots where I had to pull a U turn due to someone not shoveling their walk on the side of their house.
So now my quandry: 1/2 marathon training.
I really would like to start some sort of 'training' next week as that will put me 12 weeks out from the 1/2. However, I am a morning runner and the only mornings that I have free to run are Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Higdon's 1/2 plan calls for 4 runs a week (I think) and I dont really want to run Saturday, Sunday, Monday all in a row as I havent run 3 days in a row. I was JUST starting to run 2 days in a row this past fall.
Any suggestions? If there is a plan that is 3 days a week, I would love to see it!
I am sure I could run some evenings but I dont want to make that my primary run time.
Any suggestions on what to do??
