Let's get it started!
My marathon training officially started this morning with an early morning one-hour swim session with triathlete Carlos Lomba at the USC pool. He runs a very good program in two early morning sessions. There were like 20 of us in the water this morning (plus the rain...a faithful mate for the past month). Will use swimming as a cross-training component once or twice a week.
