Of course, there's no knowing how strong/weak/injured/tired/hungry I'll really be at the tail end of the marathon, but I kind of love the existence of a calculator that helps you guesstimate with some confidence.

I've also been reading a ton of articles on marathoning. I'm trying not to let myself get overwhelmed. That's why an article like this one is so helpful:
As the school year raises its head (I've spent the last two days getting my classroom together and open house is Saturday), I've been having trouble getting back into good sleeping habits. Last night we went out for Matt's birthday (because I'll be working on his actual birthday), and I slept in so late today I'm almost embarrassed to admit it but..."breakfast" was totally "lunch".
|They came out to celebrate on a work night, and it's not even actually his birthday yet! I'm impressed.|
I've shared this site before. I absolutely love it! I stress less about getting enough hours, and the recommendations based on REM cycles really do seem to hold water.
I know I'm going to be facing some scheduling challenges in the next couple weeks. It's time to really walk-the-walk and make training a priority so I don't fall behind. I'm going to actually have to learn to be organized!
...Oy. That seriously goes against my nature. Wish me luck!
