Resolutions: Update #1

Just wanted to pop in and say that I’ve started working on my first and second resolutions in earnest today. I signed up for swim classes this afternoon, and will start back next week. As for running, I ran a little over 2 miles yesterday, and 2.2 miles today, as well. My time is 10 minutes and 22 seconds a mile. I’m going to work at getting just a little faster, maybe 10 minutes and 10 seconds a mile, then add on more distance slowly, trying to work my way up to a little over 3 miles by late January. Hopefully I’ll be in shape to do that race at the end of the month. So far it feels nice to be running again – no major aches or pains, no real issues while I’m running, other than the music on my cell phone skipping a bit tonight. I’ve still got a bit of a cough from my cold, and the excess mucus I’m producing from running outdoors in the chilly air is bothering me just a bit. That’s really nothing, though. Tonight I tried to remember running 26.2 miles a couple of years back, and couldn’t fathom where the mental toughness came from. Maybe wherever it went, it’ll begin to come back this year – who knows?
