Getting back into the habit

Ed, developing the habit is the key. To me, a day just isn't complete without a run. I also like your idea of having a goal posted in a very visible place. I used to stick post-it notes or tape 3x5 index cards with goals on them to my bathroom mirror so I'd be staring at those goals at least twice a day, when I brushed my teeth in the morning and evening. It makes it harder to back out of a run when you're constantly looking at that goal and telling yourself that you can't miss today's run if you want to get that goal.

You're starting in a better position than you possibly ever have been in at this time of the year. There is still a lot of time to accomplish some big things before the fall. As long as you stay consistent and work hard, with appropriate recovery included of course, you can do a lot in the next 6-7 months.

I cannot believe that I have never thought of putting that goal "in my face" before. I am going to put a sign by the alarm clock, bathroom mirror and on my computer monitor at work.
