I highly recommend a running plan that gives you a day of rest between runs. The C25K on is a great one to get you started.

Also, check out Running for Mortals by John the Penguin and Jenny Hadfield. You should be able to find it at the library. Chapter 6 I believe explains why so many people start out and fail after 3-4 days. Eye opening. You won't fail again if you have the right resources!

Hello Everyone.

I've been attempting to be a "runner" for years. It would usually last about 2 days of suiting up, going outside, and then deciding it was entirely too cold/windy/hot/still/rainy to do this sort of thing and I'd be done.

My company sponsors a team for the Army Ten Miler every year. The first year I attempted it, I failed and was taken off the course for being too slow. The second year, I finished it, but literally was dragged through by a colleague. It was just as humiliating as being kicked off for being too slow. At least I didn't get bloody toes when I was kicked off.

I don't know if I'm going to run it again. But I want to be able to be better at something I always think about but never do. Enough of that. Time to get running! (at a stately pace.)

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Humbug!
December Goals:
1.) Relax
2.) Enjoy
3.) Relax
