Day 63 - Another 5 miles

Today was the tale of two runs for me. The first half was a struggle to maintain 8 min/mile pace and my legs felt like lead. When I finally reached the turn around point I stopped and stretched for about 5 minutes. I must have looked pretty bad because this little old lady in a red pick-up stopped to see if I needed help.

But on the way back, my legs finally loosened up and the hills didn't seem as bad. I finished the second half a full minute and fifteen seconds faster than the first half.

Today's run puts me at 23.1 miles for the week already, so I'll plan to take it a little shorter tomorrow. I'm not quite ready for a 40 mile week.
