Day one of 30....

It's been a while, that's for sure, since I've updated this blog. But I'm back and this time I'm going to make it a habit of documenting my sporting endeavors, which by the way aren't much these days. Not that anybody cares or follows this blog at all...but I need an honest way to hold myself accountable. So once it's out I know I got to do it. Plus, I really like being able to look back and read about the experiences without having to say that I write in a diary. Not that there is anything wrong with grown men keeping a diary. It just works for me.
Okay, so I'm going to do the 30 runs in 30 days (consecutive) once again.  I had done this before and it really helped to make me a stronger and some what "faster" runner. It dropped my overall aerobic HR while increasing my overall pace. I really hope it works again. The goal is to get me ready for a couple of half marathons early next year and subsequently prepare me for my first ultra marathon in the summer.  Cuyamaca 3 Peaks 50k run
It's really fascinating, I know.

Details: Run each day for a minimum of 30 min for 30 consecutive days. that it. Easier said than done.

Today was a mellow 5.5 mi. w/ a bit of elevation. My little trusty sidekick Sweeney came along for haul. Just trying to stay aerobic, had to go by feel cause my HR strap broke.

That's pretty much it...oh, I did some stretching and used my foam roller to loosen out afterwards.
Note: beginning weight 167 lbs.
Going to go for a longer run tomorrow. If by the off chance anyone is reading this and wants to join me for a run, hit me up.
