Nobody told mePosted: March 18, 2014
How did I not know this? I totally completely missed National Cheese Lover’s Day on January 20. How could I overlook such an important holiday? Honestly, I don’t know why we don’t celebrate this holiday everyday. Cheese is a necessary staple in my diet. It’s right up there with beef jerky and fancy imported meets from Italy. (Yes, my diet really does contain large quantities of these items.)
So, I hear spring is around the corner. Honestly though, I’ll believe it when I see it. We’ve had a heck of a winter here in Central PA. I’m a cold weather running wimp. Every fall I say I’m going to suck it up and be hardcore this winter. But every spring I find myself starting over. Such is life. I accept this about myself. Fortunately, I’ve learned a thing or two in the 10+ years I’ve been running, including how quickly I can build up my mileage. So, I’m starting easy.
March 11: 4.06 miles, 37:05
March 12: 1.76 miles, 27:18
March 15: 2.44 miles, 21:20
I’ve also incorporated some light strength training two days a week. I find even light strength training helps me go the distance. Also registered for my first race this year–the Capitol Hill Classic 10k–in May.
