Saturday on the Path

I had a chance to join one of Jenny's training groups for their "cut back" run today. Since I had already run 22 miles this week I was just trying to get in an easy 8 miles.

The group was actually a bit too fast for me so I ended up running on my own a lot. On the weekends in Chicago on the lakefront path, though, you're never really alone. It was fun to see so of the people who ran the Classic last weekend out there training.

My legs are tired, but not trashed. I may try to sneak in a few miles tomorrow to get the week's mileage up over 30.

ORN: 8 miles, R4/W2, 1 hour, 38 minutes.

John,

This whole running thing is new to me. I'm a short chunky guy whose goal is to take up less room (I need to lose about 30 lbs). Your Blog keeps me inspired and entertained. I've made my way to your web site to learn how to do all of this. After a few weeks the runs are becoming longer and easier (except that first 15 minutes...what a drag). Thanks for all you do!
