Cross-trainer extraordinaire!

I'm officially cross-training. I've started swimming 3 days a week. Not that I'm running, currently. A little over a week ago I tried with instant shin pain. I really love swimming, I've always loved swimming. I was a lucky girl growing up, with an in-ground pool.

Somehow, during the past three months of almost no running whatsoever, I've decided that I want to run the local half-marathon in September. You can go from 2mi long runs to 13.1 in that time, right? Especially if you're doing a ton of swimming and manage to lose 15-20lbs? I just don't want to wait until next year.

I can't wait to get back to running. I've decided I'm through with the treadmill this year though. Hopefully when April arrives 40° weather will, too.
