Did my 5 miles. The good news, the first half mile was easy compared to all the runs I’ve had in the last week. The still bad news, the rest of the 4.5 miles were excruciating. Ran at 4.5 mph, increased to 4.6 after 10 mins and that tiny increase in speed felt crazy hard. All in all I managed, so I’m thrilled. I have to be completely focused for the next 2 months. Nothing else is as important as this. I don’t know why I’m giving so much meaning to this run, it feels like I’m letting myself a little off the hook for not doing what I’d hoped to do in the last 6 months of not working, and this is the one achievement I’ll have had.
