Week 2 was much better than week 1. Because we actually did some running (imagine that!)! It was still very cold this week, but I really like my new running jacket, plus, you are only cold for the first 15 minutes or so. After that, you’re body warms up, and only your fingers and maybe your ears and nose get a little cold when you run into the wind.
What I am most proud of this week is that I’ve come back stronger. Rob and I talked about pushing yourself, plus I read some advice from Arnie, and I pushed myself. The second day, when I was really sore, I thought I’d only be able to run 30 minutes. But we did 60! I am going to call 2008 the year of growth: I want to become stronger in several areas of my life, and running is only one of those.
Weekly total: 21.9 miles
