I never thought I'd meet a girl like you

Sif
I had planned to go to the gym and lift after work today, but it was lovely and raining when I got home, so I ran instead. 2.75 miles in 32 minutes, with no intervals. Which means the next time I run, it will be 5k.

Last December I became a person who enjoyed running. At the end of January my IT band blew up. By February lack of running had made me surly and out of sorts. Luckily, I listened to the wise advice of friends and got PT and went back to interval training. Now I can run 5ks again, and am returning to January's plan of training for a half marathon.

My tentative schedule would have me up to 13 miles in 18 weeks, and January is definitely the time of year to run 13 miles in Texas. We'll see how this goes.

Keep this up and I'll start feeling really inadequate on my mile and a half regime. *g*

There's a half marathon in Maui in early December. *g* Maybe in 2015...

Actually, the Austin half is February 16. I will be at Boskone, but you could do it without me.

Galveston is the same weekend, and there are a bunch of other Texas ones in February:
