Me = MIA!

Sorry to have been MIA for the last few weeks.  I recently was offered an opportunity to advance my career with a different company.  So, after 11 years, I left my former company on Friday and started a new job this past Monday.  I am having a great time and adjusting to the new set of co-workers and office culture.  I am very excited about this move....

That being said, I have been just a little tiny bit busy...try putting 11 years of information stored in your brain on paper in just 10 business days...

I have been working out though and just updated Daily Mile with my stats.  I can see that we seem to all have agreed on the weekend of 12/4 for the Virtual 5k.  I am looking forward to this.  I am working up in intervals.  Right now I am working 5 min intervals with 2 min running and 3 min walking.  Next week I will switch to 3 min running and 2 min walking and then the following week I will work up to 3 miles.  My goal for the Mini Marathon in May is to run 4 walk 1 for the whole race...So once I get done with the virutal 5k, I am going to work up to the 4/1 interval and then start increasing my mileage.

My knee is still bothering me a little, but I am wearing a compression sleeve and that makes running better.  I have tried icing my knee a little and just haven't been too diligent about any therapy for my knee...I know...bad for me.

I am so excited to see everyone's progress!

More later...happy running!

I've asked a friend about doing badges for you. :)

I'm struggling right now- life keeps getting in the way of my plans to run. My mind is a struggle for me right now, too.

Sounds like a good plan!

I just wrote this review of a book that is really helping me through running-related pains. I think it might really help your knee.
