7 mile long run

Today I happily completed a 7 mile run.  I really felt great.  My time is still good, despite running on hard trails, including some pretty good hills.  I am now sitting with an ice pack on my back, a diet pepsi in front of me - and a football game on.  The best way to spend a Sunday afternoon! (well, if the Broncos decided to win, that would definitely improve the day.)

I have 10 weeks before P.F. Chang's.  I think I should have no problem getting a half marathon out of this body in 10 weeks - barring unforeseen circumstances - like injuries.  

I am so glad to be in training mode again.  It really helps me to focus.  When I have no goal, I just don't feel like getting out there.  This is good.

Great job with the long run. I think you will be more than ready come January. Sit back and enjoy that Pepsi.
