Soaring Like an Eagle
We clocked 12 miles today, split down the middle by a stop for kick boxing class. The first half was at a steady 12 minute mile clip with only a little walking once we got started.
We were stoked and stunned to realize we could actually maintain a strong pace and go the distance. And we had the added weight of our equipment, not that much but about five pounds total.
We started at S's house and ran to class, played Jackie Chan for an hour and then it was back to S's, home for her; my waiting car to take me home, for me.
The return trip was slower. It was hotter and we didn't feel like pressing the issue so we mostly walked, although we did factor in some running.
