So, today my Mean Running Coach* took me on a route that was over 5 miles. This is farther than I have ever run before. I hasten to add that I probably ran half of it at most -- but we did complete the whole thing in maybe an hour and a quarter, which is pretty respectable.
But oh, was it painful! The good thing is, it will be a lot easier to do on Friday. It is amazing how the body gets stronger so quickly.
* She is actually really nice and one of my dearest friends at work.
