Running Plan 2010

Have been following a getting-back-to-running-and-beyond plan for this year. Here it is

It does not include the details, just the outline. The initial months are the toughest, and the most fun. That's when you have to go slow to build your aerobic base (A nice writeup on aerobic base building is here). The Garmin Forerunner 305 I bought recently has been helpful in this - beeping faithfully whenever I cross 155 bpm. This is also fun since the runs are slow and easy, and you don't feel worn out or breathless even on the long ones

I've found http://www.dailymile.com/ to be a good site to track progress. It does not have many features like other running log sites, but I like its look and ease of use. And it has Garmin integration.
