I took off about 8:30 this morning. It was 54 F when I started and 59 F at the finish.

I started running again about nine weeks ago.
I was really struggling to run two miles. It would be accurate to say I was capable of running 1.5 miles without heroics.
The rule-of-thumb that is in many books on running is to increase your distance by 10% a week. At that rate it takes about seven weeks to double your distance.
It feels grand to be ahead of the curve. Going from being capable of running 1.5 miles to 6.0 miles in nine weeks is 16% weekly gain. I want to get up to 9 miles but don't see much point in going past that.
