Meet Justin, my personal running trainer

I know what you're thinking. The resemblance to Lee Adama is striking.
But this is how I picture Justin.

Justin is my Ipod Personal Running Trainer. With the help of his 4 Weeks to 1 Mile training program, I ran my first mile last night. Considering that I haven't run this far since freshman year of high school, I'm really quite proud of this modest achievement.

I couldn't have done it without Phineas' help, either. He planned the route that we ran, which ended with a gentle downhill to help me to the finish line. And he trotted along with me at my ridiculously slow pace, toting a water bottle and encouraging me along the way.

Now, on to the 8 Weeks to 5K program...

lol, that's what my personal trainer looks like too!! how's the running coming along? I hope better than mine. I do have a good excel tracker -- I found it off the web http://bit.ly/SxV67
its a bit old but it tracks everything and is kinda neat.
Also, I found Hal Higdon's programs to be v. good to follow. (ie easy and do-able)
