This morrning I did 30 minutes on the elliptical machine. I'm still feeling some residual weariness from yesterday's 30-minute run, I think, as I got plenty of sleep last night. My body's a LITTLE more accustomed to running more during the week, but not by much, especially for that "long." (30 minutes is chicken feed to a lot of runners out there, I know!) I need to keep at it, and not rush into adding more distance at this point.
Back when I decided to get back into running (and started this blog), my initial goal was to train for a marathon. I googled marathon training, and was totally surprised. I knew I needed to scale back my goals, but quick! I appreciate marathoning even more now. I remember one marathon training program started with the assumption that the runner was already at a base of 30 minutes of running several times a week, probably a little faster than I'm running, to boot! I still have a long way to go to get to where I want to be!
