Got some better shoes, and went for a pathetic-short run in the cold.
As Matt Haughey pointed out, there's nothing like public shame to make you do better, so pasting it here, although deeply embarrassing with the number of marathon heroes and heroines in my neighbourhood.
Don't think I'm traveling too much in February so should be able to get more regular runs in the park.
I wish Vox made a Nike+ widget…

I think there's definitely a lot of demand for a Nike+ widget… shouldn't be that hard to make, since the XML format's been mostly decoded.And good on you for posting your run! If I can get slightly more motivated, I'll join in on the public self-shaming. You're winning already, getting out there and moving.
Making a Nike+ thingum for a Vox sidebar would be a great thing to convert more people to regular blogging IMHO…
Have you tried the Couch to 5K thing?
Some friendly Scandinavians have home-brewed a little widget at http://www.justdoing.it/ . It doesn't look great but it does the job.
