Marathon Training Begins

7 miles in 1:06:43, 9:32 per mile, a good way to officially kick off my training season. My schedule had me doing 3 miles today, but lefnim meshiras hadin never hurt anybody (okay, that's debatable).

Preliminary assessment of my Running-through-winter experiment is quite positive. My legs are strong, my knees have held up, I have no muscle fatigue, all my joints are pain-free, I've lost 6 pounds and I've got a 50 mile head-start on any of my previous training seasons.

As Dilios said in 300 (The 2nd greatest action movie of all-time): "A good start."
