Might run a race in April, 2nd sunday of the month.

I did really well on Wednesday, did a training record for the last few years out on a levee. Today I did really bad but the weather was terrible, wind in my face, cold and i was wearing extra clothes.

Right now the goal is still to break 20 mins.

8km. 2nd run this week. It's supposed to be autumn where I live, but still very hot.

I haven't run in a while, I ran my longest distance so far, a round trip from Versailles to Chaville.

Enough said.

I went for my first run of the season today, and it answered my question as to whether or not the exercise machine I had been using maintained my progress from last year. The answer which does not appear to be yes.

On the bright side though, I got to spend some extra time outside in the nice whether, and the exercise machine did make my butt look amazing. So, you know, you win some, you lose some.

My goal right now is to get my 5k time back down to around the 30 minute mark, and then up my distance. By the end of the summer, I'd like to be running in the 7 mile area (11 km). Even in the best shape of my life I don't think I ever ran more than 5 miles, so if I could get to 7 that would be really cool.

Everything is possible, try running in a slower pace perhaps, that's what I did during my last run.
My friends generally call me Burstowski, because I do things very fast and only think about the short term when it comes to physical effort, I end up depleting my quadriceps and not being able to run any further, regardless of my breathing capabilities.

Are you talking about your Gluteus Maximus?

Yes! When I do up my distance, I plan on it being at a slower pace. The reason I am working up to it is so that I don't have as hard of a time motivating myself to regularly run.

And, why yes, it was my Gluteus Maximus I was speaking of

I rarely do that, because I don't get sore muscles the day after.

I haven't done as much running in the last week as I would like, but I have probably walked almost a half marathon between a couple city trips. Man was I sore!

I wish I was one of those people who enjoyed exercise. I even enjoy things like walks, but I can never get up the motivation for exercise beyond that.
