I'm pretty out of shape. I'll have to get on that.

Warm up on bike and then a short run. Not a fan of winter running.

Warmed up 10 minutes on the bike, did a core workout, and then went out for 2 miles. My lungs are not doing well out in the cold utah air, and I'm just in general out of shape. Need to get out more days this week.

10 minutes on the bike, core workout, a little over 2 miles. I get pretty rough headaches when I run in the cold, even with a solid hat on. Geez I need to graduate and move somewhere warm.

One tenth of a marathon at goal pace. It didn't feel easy, but it felt good. Besides the cold and high altitude of course.

I've got 17 weeks before the marathon. I need to be able to run a 20 miler at goal pace a couple weeks before the marathon.

So early April goal: 20 miler at goal pace

Early march goal: 15 miler at goal pace

Early february goal: 10 mile run at goal pace...

Seems ambitious to add 5 miles to my long runs per month but it'll be good to try. I need to get in shape. And if I can pull it off then I should have a really good summer of training. If I could be running about 40 miles per week in the summer inury free I'd be pretty excited.
