Remembering the Cross Country Days…

  Back when I was in high school, I ran cross country.  I wasn’t very good but still managed 24 minute 3.1 mile runs.  That’s roughly an 8-minute mile.  However, I weighed only about 130 lbs back then so it was easier.  Now, I weigh swanking 170 lbs and it’s been 16 years later!  😮

  As you know, I have started working out again, and today, I got off work earlier than normal at 2:30 pm because I already fulfilled the time for the two weeks.  So I headed off and ran for 3.4 miles in 45 minutes.  Sure that’s twice slower than before, but I am running at the least.  I hope to lose about 10 to 15 pounds over the next several months this year.  Ah the youth… and hopefully by the end of the year, I can cut down my time to sub-10-minute mile speed.  I usually start at 15-minute mile pace and speed up to 10-minute mile pace.   So today’s speed was about 13.x-minute mile…  Oh well, you gotta start somewhere.  😉
