Half Marathon Pre-Training

Today I started what I am calling my "Half Marathon Pre-Training". Basically this is just me getting back into the swing of things before my official training plan starts on Nov 14. I have a history of knee issues and shin splints, so I want to start working now to prevent any injuries. Today I ran/walked 1.5 miles outside (what a BEAUTIFUL day, too!), then I went into the gym and did some leg strengthening exercises. Mostly I'm focusing on building up the muscles in my quads and hamstrings so that they hold my knees in the right place while I'm running. I'm going to aim to get to the gym at least twice a week.

Miles: 1.5
Time: ???

Miles on my Brooks: 23
