First Month of Training

Completed my first month of training-> injury free. {Working up to a ½ marathon.}
But still find the LSD {see below} runs strange...I'm used to going the same speed every run. I do take in more of the surroundings and those 30 sec walking breaks are more acceptable.

start to finish

real estate signs

roadkill - i run faster

a westerly wind

frosty footprints of another runner

NOT the hallucinogen. LSD is an abbreviation for "Long, Slow Distance," which refers to the practice of running longer distances at an "easy" pace rather than shorter ones to exhaustion. The slower pace allows the runner to go longer and, therefore (supposedly), gain more fitness. Runner's World Glossary
