It was hotter when I started. Much. My time isn't zippy, but for the weather, I'm good.
Mile one was 8:57. Obviously, that was around 15 seconds too fast.
Last week's mileage is at 35.08 miles. That's nice to see. If fitness is going to happen, it will not be by running tidy 20 mile weeks. I'm not sure that 35 miles weekly will get me there either, but at 34 days into this I'm happy.
I was asking myself if a cold orange Fanta would taste good when I was done. Now I know. It did. 270 calories of cool pleasure. Earned every sip.
Tomorrow will be a shorter run, with Thursday as a travel day, and Friday either also a rest day, or on the treadmill.
