The good news is that I have completed all the scheduled runs for the first three weeks as scheduled. The bad news (at least for me) is that I have completed them all on the treadmill. I could complain more about treadmill running, but all I am going to say is that I am thankful that I have it as an option when the temperatures are low (I don't run below 35*F) and/or there is snow/ice on the ground (aka always.. it hasn't stopped snowing this winter).

One more note on training so far: I know it is very running heavy (6 days a week) and very lacking in strength and cross training. I have some plans for working those in and cutting back to 4-5 days of running a week in the next couple of weeks, especially after my planned 5k on the 16th of March.
And in that same vain, I am very supportive of taking a rest day when your body is worn out and your muscles need the extra time to recover. Not just because you would rather sit on the couch and watch TV while eating the amazing So Delicious Cookie Dough "coconut milk frozen dessert" you just discovered than get your but out the door or on the treadmill. Not that I've even considered that one...
