Revised Marathon Plan

Ok - as a part of hitting my personal reset button, I've reworked my training plan tohopfully work better for me.  I found a gentler 22 week beginners plan and it was completely workable with the distances I am currently at for the last 11 weeks to my marathon.  I've put less pressure on myself for weekdays (though I am now REALLY needing to get onto Map My Run to find longer routes or to count on doing doubles of shorter routes on weekdays) and have given myself a workable weekend plan for getting in a third "weekday" run on Sunday.   Perhaps the best part is that the distances that fall on the weekends for my half marathons are no longer diatances where I need to make up extra miles after the race - I'll just take the races easy since they are longer than the new distances for that week.

I think I can stick to this without any issue (Google calendar is updated as well):

CT is going to be bike/suspension/both
