The weather was great over the weekend, sunny and high 40s. DBF and I walked into town on Saturday, along the lake, and back home for total of 7.6 miles. Not running, but 7.6 miles nonetheless. Sunday, my Sis#1 and I went for a power walk, only 2.25 miles but better than nothing.

Today is SRD due to class tonight. Back to the running tomorrow with 3 miles after work...

I've taken a base-building schedule, and a marathon training schedule, put them together and then stretched them out (i.e. together they were 30 weeks, and I've stretched them out to 36 weeks). More time for my base-building, and also have repeated some weeks during the marathon training. I think it'll be a good working plan for me.

So, we're in a stretch of decent weather at the moment. Mid-20s at night, and mid-30s during the day. Add in a little sun, longer days, and it's almost easy to believe that spring is here. Of course, this is Vermont, so let's not be fooled into thinking that winter is over. heck, we've got another 2 months of it! (no, just one more month, really).

All that is to say that the long winter funk is over. I'm psyched to be outside, and it's almost to the point where I can run outside after work and still be in daylight hours. Maybe another 2 weeks or so.

I'm focused on the running, and focused on eating better. I've also cut down to just one cup of coffee a day (and am even trying to skip that a few days a week). Now comes the hard part - cutting down on salt. oy.

Oh, and as far as the "giving cheese up for Lent" thing, well, it's starting to annoy me. :-) 4 weeks and 3 days until that's over.
