It's been a while

I haven't actually blogged a run since July 2nd. I must rectify that. But just so you know, I have been running and such. I tweet workouts on twitter. And I log my activity on dailymile. It's like Facebook or Myspace for athletes. Am I an athlete now? I kind of feel like it. I am taking yoga and swim classes. I haven't broken out my bike yet for the month though. I must get on that. I don't want to be a triathlete or anything. I just want to stay healthy and active.

So I feel like I should recap what I've done. So here goes...

7/3 - Yoga (30min dvd)

7/4 - 3mi Run (26:09 - 8:43 pace)

7/5 - 7mi Run (1:04:48 - 9:15 pace)

7/7 - 5mi Run (44:11 - 8:50 pace)
Swim Lesson (30min)

7/8 - 5mi Run (48:25 - 9:41 pace)
Yoga Class (1hr)
3mi Run (27:10 - 9:03 pace)

7/11 - 3mi Run - Daytona Beach (28:02 - 9:20 pace)

7/13 - Swim (700yd)

7/14 - 6mi Run (54:40 - 9:06 pace)
Yoga Class (1hr)

7/15 - 3mi Run (26:30 - 8:50 pace)

7/16 - 4mi Run (37:36 - 9:24 pace)

7/18 - 3mi Run (25:48 - 8:36 pace)

Then I ran last night. Pretty graph is posted below. So far, I have 58mi for the month. I've skipped only one run, and that's because I was in Florida. I actually ran twice in one day since I had to travel on a run day. So no slacking on my part. Hopefully, I can keep this going.

Hey, I've been lurking on your blog for a while, and as a beginning runner I've been inspired by what you've accomplished. I'm curious about what training you used to get yourself up to speed on the running. I've been trying various programs and keep ending up over training or under training...any tips?
