Marathon Training: Doing Good, Minor Setback

I'm doing really well with my marathon training. The past two weeks, I've been walking at least 30 minutes for 6 out of the 7 days in a week. Sunday, I started running as well as walking -- walk two or three minutes, run a minute, lather, rinse, repeat. Now I'm on a schedule where Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays will be walk days, Tuesday and Thursdays will be run (walk/run for now) days, and Sunday will be long run days. For example, this past Sunday, I did about four and a quarter miles.

Anyway, the setback is today. I'm dressed and ready to go out for my half-hour walk, but I'm going to skip it. I have too many things I need to accomplish in the next 12 hours and 48 hours; it really will make a difference to have the 45 minutes today's walk would have taken. Don't worry, it's nothing more that I'm just really busy with some hard deadlines, both at work and in my personal life, right now. Also, my sweatshirt is still damp from when I washed it last night and they dryer didn't completely dry it. Wearing a damp sweatshirt in the cold for thirty minutes is a recipe for sickness. No thanks.

I'd explain more, but I really don't have time. In a week or two, I should be able to catch up in my LJ about what I've been up to.
