Motivation found

I found my motivation to get back into running today.  I find that I always need a little time away from the pavement/treadmill after a race.  I can't explain why, but the mental and physical break is something I crave.  I hit the gym this morning in the midst of an icky, rainy morning.  It was a good treadmill morning.  I got back into the walk-run routine and had a great 3 mile run.  No knee pain and I felt comfortable.  In other words, I didn't have to "muscle it", which for me, is a key sign of a good run.  Here's a breakdown of my walk/run breakdown.

Walk 1 minute, Run 4 minutes- 5 minutes
Walk 1 minute, Run 4 minutes - 10 minutes
Walk 1 minute, Run 9 minutes - 20 minutes
Walk 1 minute, Run 5 minutes - 26 minutes
Walk 1 minute, Run 4 minutes - 31 minutes --> 3 miles
