"I'm Gettin' Too Old For This Shit"
Well, after a week of running, I've noticed one thing: Goddamn am I out of shape. Granted, I haven't run much of anywhere in the past 6 years, but that track is kicking my ass. It's not even my muscles that are bothering me; after two laps (half a mile) I just don't have any air left.
Anyway, my goals for now are breathtakingly modest. Step one: Run laps 3 and 4 one after the other instead of taking a break in-between. Step two: Combine the first and second half-miles into a single one-mile run. Sounds easy, doesn't it?
I'll let you know if I keep it up long enough to succeed.
