Jogged 3.91 miles in 42:49

I jogged 3.91 miles in 42:49 this morning, from Griffith Street to McGinley Square and back.

In the late-80s I ran 10 miles every morning and often did a longer run on Saturday afternoon. Then, biking to the George Washington Bridge and back was a bit of an effort. Now, with biking every day, the 20 mile ride takes no special effort.

Running is a different story. As my knees and lower legs just can’t take too much pounding, I only was doing 6.6 miles 3 times a week. Snow and then plantar fasciitis put a stop to running for over five months this year. With hamstrings sore from a short jog, it looks like getting back into some sort of stride is going to be hard work.
