I've begun a running program. It has been two years since the surgery on my right foot.

Still, here are some of the tools that are making the new program interesting.

iPod. Nike+ iPod. PodRunner podcast, and

So I had a short term goal of two miles at eight minutes per mile. I hit that day one no problem. However, over the next two days I knew that core strength wasn't what it should be.  I had expected some leg muscle pain. After all, the open road isn't an elliptical trainer. I had none of that. In its place I had pain at all the places my torso attaches to my legs.

Great to be moving in the open air again. And to think, I used to be a real runner. Will be again soon too.

Time and effort.
