I signed up for the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon in November 2013 and it is my intention to walk every step of it. The walk every step of the marathon will be a first for me. I've done a few other marathons, but in each of them did include some running. But after the knee pain that came on during Soldier Marathon and the subsequent discovery of it only hurts when I run, I gave up all running.
So with the goal of finishing Chickamauga under 6 hours and not feeling like crap afterwards, I have put a training plan together including fartleks, tempos, LSDs, and a bunch of easy walks. Hopefully it will all work.
Last week was a good training week, it was any easy week, but that is how the plan works.

I will have to check the calibration on my Garmin (FR60) footpod.
