So Far, So Good

Filled with my desire to start running again, I motivated myself a few weeks ago.  Not that I bought a new running shoes , a new apparel or a new gadget, I just told myself I need to run again. So far , so good.  For the past two weeks I have logged probably 9 kilometers of road running. Too little , you would say, but for me it is a good start. Knowing that the weather has never been that cooperative. Two of my runs were both on frigid conditions, lower twenties ( 20F ) if I may add. Good thing, I got all the needed gears to run on winter. I plan to  continue doing these small runs as a progression until I find my groove and start racking up miles again. For now a simple 5K run once or twice a week would be very satisfying.

What is the next step? I have not figured it out. But definitely I should start looking for a good race. Perhaps a 3.2 miler this February. For now, I'll enjoy my little runs and if I see a good progress, I might sign up for a race. One more thing thats encouraging - the concept of muscle memory is indeed true.  The speed is there, but the endurance and the overall fitness is nowhere where I want it to be. I run, I walk, I stop to catch my breathe. Nothing to be disappointed with. I'll be there and getting out just to get some run is the first step.
