From humble beginnings . . .

My marathon training officially started this morning. Up at 4:00 am, I hit the pavement at 5:00, yawning and still trying to rub the sleep from my eyes. I put in an easy 3 mile recovery run. I ran 6 days last week, mostly low mileage but the intensity was high in preparation for Saturday’s 5k.

The change of pace was nice. Between the relaxing run and some stretching afterwards the aches that had been gradually creeping into my legs and hips for the past week seem to have already worked themselves out.

I rest tomorrow and then I’ll run five miles Wednesday.

It begins.
