It was GREAT to run with my best friend again. The three days that I spent with her, we ran 6 miles one day, hiked 8 miles another day, then ran another 5 miles my last day there. It was wonderful. I know myself well enough to know that if I didn't get back into running as soon as I got home, that it would be difficult for me to start back again. That being said, I ran yesterday after work. And I just finished a 2 mile (slow run) in the rain. I'm starting my half marathon training, and this week I am to run a total of 16 miles. I plan to run my long run on Friday.
I can see improvement in myself... and I'm happy about that!
