How to Purl, How to Run

The purl stitch is the opposite of the knit stitch. Knit, purl, knit, purl. Makes it look nice. Instead of coming through the loop with your right needle from the bottom, it's from the top. Hmm, that probably doesn't translate well. How about this: how to purl.

I might try running again. Maybe it won't kill my knees if I follow these rules:

Week One:
Always Warm up. Walk five minutes, jog three minutes. Repeat three times. Do this three times the first week.

Week Two:
Walk four minutes, jog four minutes. Repeat three times. Do three sessions week two.

Week Three:
Walk three minutes, jog four minutes. Repeat four times. Four sessions in week three.

Week Four: Walk two minutes, jog five minutes. Repeat four times. Four sessions in week four.

Week Five: Walk two minutes, jog eight minutes. Repeat four times.

And so on and so forth. Of course, the ground is covered with ice and snow, so... Hm. Too bad I don't have cross country skis!

Sometimes I think it would be cool to run -- you know be prepared in the event of zombies and all...but then my knees think it's a bad idea and protest a tad too loudly.
