Slugged it out, and I mean SLUG!

Man, I'm such a slug! I know I haven't ran for a while due to the hips, weather, etc. but jeez, it took me 43 minutes to run three lousy miles! I shouldn't be too hard on myself since I was walking a minute and running two minutes. I got mud all over my shoes and up my legs, but it was worth it. Isn't it amazing how great you feel finally getting a run in after a layoff! You get so depressed, in a crappy mood, then you get a run in and everything changes. You feel so positive and chipper and you can't wait for the next run or ride. I'm hoping to get in a ride tomorrow if it's not too windy. Running into the wind with a sweaty body and getting chilled is not a good thing in the last stages of a cold! I'm out!......................Mike

Mike -- Great start! Walking every 2 minutes is a great way to go. It would take 60 minutes to walk 3 miles, so you ended up halfway between full walk and full jog -- not bad at all. -- Bill
