My friend Neighbor Ted called. He is in North Carolina. I am in Arizona. We are about to start running together.
I need to move and exercise again. Thanks to all of you who have stuck with this grumpy bear during the winter. (In particular, I think that Doc's increasingly tough stance in recent posts have lit a fire under my tail!).
So, Neighbor Ted and I will both be following Hal Higdon's 8K training plan (for 8 weeks). In reality, 8k is only 5.1 miles and I will likely get there before 8 weeks, but I am heavier now than I have been in previous running seasons.
Officially, Week 1 starts on Sunday, but I will be doing some walking tomorrow and Saturday to get moving.
I am also going to re-listen to the Two Gomers podcast, a sometimes funny weekly podcast about two guys (in their mid-20's) that started running to prepare for their first half-marathon.
More to come.
