J. Robert Oskarmaier and Balonium-261

[The title's a long story... not worth repeating.]

I've decided to get serious about training again. Crazy serious. Stupid serious.

I've worked out a training plan, looked it over and thought, "It might work, if I were a 2:30 marathoner." Worth a shot, anyway.

Today is day 2 of training. Day 1? Fail. Day 2? Fail.

Apparently, I can't even construct a decent blog post today, so training's just one facet of general failure, but at least I'm back to training.

Good to hear you are back training, and apparently with an ambitious goal.

Not sure if setting your goals so high at the outset is the best motivator, but to each their own.

Hey Steve,

I've been following your blog for some time now and appreciate your running insights. I was thinking about Superior 100 next Fall (first 100) and 1-2 goal races prior to that in preparation. Are you still thinking about Superior?

@Andy: If you waited one more minute, you would've seen the next post: yes, I'm thinking Superior.

And I'd recommend against Superior for a first 100.
