I’ve just ressurected my run log, which is really also a workout log, after it being inactive since last August. Try as I might last year, I never could get to the point where I could run continuously. I finally pushed hard enough that my knees started bothering me again, or something else would get sore, or whatever. It just wasn’t working.
So I gave up.
This year I once again got some resolve together, and instead of running I tried weights. I just got some dumbells out after a few weeks of doing pushups and crunches, and eventually started following the Men’s Book of Muscle routine. It’s been working ok, I’ve lost about 8lbs and a few inches off my waste, and things are fine.
But Tuesday I decided to see how far I could run, and the results were much better than I expected. Yee Ha!
Now, I’m not yet going to start thinking about a marathon this year, but if I could get to 3 miles/day by April…
