Let the Running Season Begin!

The running season has begun. — I know it is a little late, actually quite a bit late, but the weather has really been dreadful — snow, cold, rain, cold, wind, cold, brrr.  I’m such a “fair-weather runner” that I just can’t get myself to lace up my running shoes and get out the door when it is cold outside.  Unfortunately, since I live in New Hampshire, that really cuts out 4-5 months of the year!

Anyway, in the last week, I ran a 5K Trail Run and went to my first track workout of the season.  Given my 4 1/2 month hiatus, both were difficult, and I have a long way to go!

But I will get there.  My plan of action is to get out and run at least 3 times a week, stepping up my weekly mileage from a total of 12-14 miles a week to 16-18 by the end of the month, and then maintaining a minimum of 20 miles per week including a weekly track workout.
