Next Goal Started! - 8 weeks to go

One goal complete: finished my 21 day running course - now on to harder things - training for my first 5k.

Ran 2.4k in 19 mins. This 2.4k is going to be an anchor track for me - I run it on every Wednesday for 7 of the next 8 weeks. Was 23°C for the run at 7 a.m. Felt like I wanted to run a little faster and break out of the jog, did so sometimes and then jogged in place for my wife to catch up, and then she pulled away from me near the end!

Wish I could make a joke about something today, but I'm just grateful for being able to run with a beautiful women through a pleasant neighborhood (and get healthier while doing it).

[To the three people that read this blog: I've added a few navigation tabs on the top of the blog, one for my progress, one for the program goals I am running on, one for inspirational stuff, and finally one for maxims I am starting to collect about running. If you know of any good maxims let me know - funny would be nice.]

I am looking forward to this Wednesday's report (35 degrees in the shade).

After reviewing this blog - it is obvious to me that you have too much free time!
