It was very good to see Liz and also just to get out there and get it done, but it must be said that it felt arduous from start to finish. And wintry! I remember at the 6-mile mark looking at my watch and thinking, Gosh, it is a good thing we are only doing 11 miles rather than 12, that means we are more than halfway done.... We walked most of the uphills on the second loop and it still felt epic when we were finished.
The good thing about the human brain is that forty minutes later, having devoured omelets and fresh OJ and coffee in a warm restaurant, it was impossible to remember how arduous it felt!
(My legs are tired from spinning, I think. Total training hours for the week: 7:33, all spinning and running. That's pretty solid.)
