|Nine miles - yeah baby!|
I ran a route that I wrote about here - basically it's leg 7 of Hood To Coast run in reverse - out 4.5 miles and back. It's a difficult route with continual rolling hills, but it goes through beautiful countryside and it was perfect running weather this morning so I can't complain.
|This is about 1.5 miles into the run - meaning that hill in the |
background would have to be climbed at the end...ugh!
Anyway, the run felt great and I'm progressing well. My foot still needs pampering, but it recovers well. I definitely need to do some speedwork - I'm super slow compared to where I was at previously. But obviously that's to be expected and I'll take it - I'm just so happy to be running again! In a few weeks I should be DOUBLE digits! Woo hoo!
Now for a little funny - here's some "motivation" my friend Ed sent me the other day. Ryan Gosling really wants to help me run...
|Finally a man who understands how interesting my running is!|
|You better make it 4am Ryan, I'm usually running by 5....|
I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend!
