It's a start...

...and I am okay with that.

I went out this morning for a short run. My goal was to go 30 minutes, whether I could run most of it or not, taking walk breaks when necessary. I am still quite unfamiliar with the area, and am trying to stay away from the really busy roads, which can be difficult from where I live. I pretty much made a large circle around the neighborhood. My knee was a little achy towards the end, but I think it will be okay. The weather couldn't have been more perfect.... overcasting, 55 degrees, a cool breeze, but a lot of humidity.

ORN: 2.45 miles
Duration: 30:45

glad to see the knee is holding up. and glad to see not everyone is running in 100 degree temps east of me. it's starting to cool off here in the evenings, which is nice, but a sucky reminder that summer is nearing an end.

have fun exploring the new roads!

This is an awesome tool to figure out routes in an unfamiliar area. Just type in the zip code and you're off! It's really helped me over the past few weeks.

Best of luck!

Slow but steady, that's the way to do it.
