    My goal is to spend 2014 working through progressive run training programs starting at 1 mile, and finishing at 26 miles "strong" It's not a race, it's about the journey :)

    wk 1 day 2 upped my speed .5 walk 2.5 run 3.5 getting use the treadmill was a bit claustrophobic at first, this morning was able to move naturally without hovering my hands over the rails lol ...

    Thanks CES , Fudgey :) Walking and running always feels good it is one of those clear your mind and just go type of activities.

    wk 1 day 3 run training to 1 mile speed: walk 2.8 run 3.8 felt strong.. so hard to stay with the program and not push too hard building myself back up from scratch finished with adding a nice 1/2 mile cool down walk .. Week one done, 2 day rest . Next week training is a little less walking and more run time and I feel 100% ready...

    Wk 2 day 1 90 sec walk /90 sec run x 4 2.8 /3.4 just couldn't find my grove this morning feeling stiff :( so it was a struggle ...... felt better towards the last set and the cool down walk. Makes sense I needed a longer warm up.. """ note to self for Wednesday """ :)

    yes ,, I have tried to walk barefoot in the snow and lol it just doesn't work lol lol lol ... :) so I have to wear my boots which I love.. but they not good for running in long distances. Winter times I can not run outside.. Spring and Summer I run barefoot :) Just something about gripping the dirt with your toes that feels so right :)

    WK3 day 1 sounded harder then it felt,, love surprises !!! going into it with the thought no matter what the training will be for today, I will do my best to make it happen and not worry about it if I fall short. 2:15 runs / 45 sec walks X 4... 3.0 to 3.4 mph to the finish.... (( done ))
