The only problem was that the whole time I kept wondering why on earth it felt so hard! I kept telling myself I just ran 13 miles while sick less than two weeks ago, and it did not feel as hard as this.
But I didn't wear a watch, and when I got back to the car I figured out why it was so hard.
I kept a 9:00 average pace.
Something I haven't even tried to run in months.
Yeah. I'll take that. :)
