4/21/08 - 1.6 miles

Distance: 1.6 miles
Time: 18 minutes - 11:30 minute mile.
Weather: low 50's, windy.
School and Back.

It has been a painfully long time since I've run. Granted, yesterday I rode my bike to the store for a few essentials, but it's just not the same.

Today's run was more to just get out there. I figure this week I'll run between 1.5 and 2, and go for 4 on Saturday. Could I have gone farther today? Sure. Did I want to? Not really.

I nixed the OKC Half. At this point, I would just hurt myself. Though frustrated, this long cold winter really kicked my ass.

Friday, I signed up for the Twin Cities Marathon on October 5th.

Training starts in earnest the first week in June. I'm using between now and then to get my weight down and my mileage up.

Part of that will include eating better and riding my bike for more errands. Today I need to take a couple packages to the post office, and rather than load up in the Suburban, I'll take my bike.

One day at a time. I'll get there.

I think that is a good plan, G. Good job on getting out there.
