Running Update

In preparing for a 10k in September I've been doing a slow but steady training session for about the past two months.  Things are going well thus far, and I've reached the 5 mile mark for my every-other-day runs.  I'm 50/50 that if push came to shove and I needed to crank out that 6th mile to get in a 10k, I could do it.

There is still a lot left to do.  My pace is horribly slow and needs to be improved.  I do need to stretch out my distance.  My form is really bad when I fatigue, and I heel-strike way too much, usually starting at mile 3.  Likewise, my diet's not been good living as a bachelor up here in the north woods, so I'm carrying far more weight than I'd like for the amount of mileage I'm logging.  With life getting more normal next month and with the mileage increasing, my hope is that some of it starts to fall off.

In the meantime the goal is to stay healthy and not get injured.  So far, so good.
