Run: 3.47 miles
Time: 27 minutes 10 seconds
After yesterday's quite astonishing 80 lengths on the pool (I'm still a bit in awe of myself for having done that), it's back to the running today. A "brisk" 30 minutes is called for, so I opt for 3 "mile" laps of the village, but extended a bit to what might be 1.2 miles? I didn't measure the distance before I set out, but did a quick calculation that running 3 of these about 8m20s each would be spot on half an hour.
In fact, however, the laps were only 1.16 miles, and I ended up running faster than an 8-minute-mile pace. I almost ran past my house to clock up the full 30 minutes, but thought that on reflection 27 minutes was close enough. It was a great feeling to have run 3½ miles in this quick pace so easily. I've come along way in the three years I've been running (1,871 miles to be precise). I wonder where I'll be in three years' time?
