Day 1

Today was the first day that I ran in 2007. Not a good sign, especially since I want to run 1,000 miles this year. I ran 1.93 miles tonight. Not a lot. I wasn't running to distance, I was running to time - 20:00. Slow, I know, but not slow enough. My heart rate was running in the mid 160's. I'd like to keep it in the low 150's. Next time I'll have to adjust my pace to match that. I think what I'll start doing is posting my weekly, monthly, and yearly mileage and time in each running post.
A little background on my running. I've run off and on for about 10 years now. I've never taken it seriously for more than 6 months at a time. My PR's are pathetic. The closest I come to respectable is a 5k in 22:27. In the fall of 2003 I was running 40 miles a week and able to run 21:00 or so for 5k. I was training for a half marathon with a goal time of 1:40:00. Then I got patellar tendonitis, moved, had a kid, and got fat. So we'll see how I do this time around. Hopefully this will be a form of accountability for me.
Week - 1.93 - 20:00
Month - 1.93 - 20:00
Year - 1.93 - 20:00
