Marathon Training

Here is my training plan. If you could read it, you would see that I ran 3 miles in 33minutes this morning and 4 miles on Saturday.
I have a 5 mile run scheduled for later this week. My goal it to run it in less than an hour.
This training gives me something else to concentrate on beside the sliding stock market, failure or our finanical institutions and political machine.

1/2 Marathon

OK, so I haven't done any running since about 1979, but what the heck, I signed up for the Seattle Marathon held on Nov 30.
This gives me about 9 1/2 weeks. (quick flash back to 1986 Phoenix AZ)

Before signing up and committing myself, I did two short runs around the neighborhood at a nice slow pace. Mona joined me on the second run. I didn't have any trouble running 20min without stopping so I went out an bought a pair of running shoes.

This morning I ran to work. It is about 2 miles and took me about 30min.
I feel fine, we will see how things are after I run home.

Thought it was time to add more than just sailing to my blog.

More to come.
