Birthday Challenge – Half Way There

Today’s run was number 13 of 25 and aside from a continually sore knee as a result of overdoing it on run number one, I’m doing fine. Because of the slight knee discomfort, as well as the less-than-ideal weather and limited daylight after work, lately I haven’t been running quite the distances I had originally intended. However, I’m still averaging well over four miles/run and I plan on maintaining that.

It was especially crappy outside today, with cold rain and strong winds but apparently I’m getting my legs back because I shaved 40+ seconds/mile off of the pace I’ve been averaging.  If this acceleration continues (highly doubt it) I’ll be running six minutes miles by the end of this challenge!
