almost 4 months and still on track

Finally start to feel a lot better and have lost 15 pounds -- almost.
15 pounds is enough for my clothes to fit much better. I have been
following Jack Daniel's white plan for beginners. It is built around
running for a minute and walking for a minute.

I was running 6 days a week, but I am thinking of cutting back to give
my body a rest in between runs. I am enjoying running (if I can call
it that).

Down to 227 -- on track.

Started last week in Feb so Mar, April, May and June!

Not the drink...

He has programs from beginner up to racer. It is a little over my
head, but it deal tell me a couple of very useful ideas.

1) step rate: more steps per minute. I was slow and had a pounding
step that was hurting my leg. At a higher step rate, less stress and
an easier run. Should try to reach 180/min; I can't get there yet.
Faster runners just have a longer stride.

2) run one min; walk one min -- set of 10.
