another year older, and deeper in debt. (That's probably too obscure a reference for you young 'uns, so just click the link and you'll actually hear the real song.)
And why would I be singing, you ask?
Because I just ran 16 miles!! And it was good! And I stayed with my pace group! (More about P.G. (pace group) angst-dramafest later; mostly my doing, i think.)
And I did it somewhere between 3:33 or 3:35 minutes!!! (I love using exclamation marks.)
Which is around a 13:19 pace or 13:26, whatever. Oh let's say I ran 13:19-minute miles, just for fun.
I'm deliriously happy because I kept up with this pace group—the 13:30 pace group—(more about that later), even though they were supposed to be running 14:30 today, due to excessive heat, etc., only they decided they didn't need to (more about that later).
I kept up, I was fine at the end, a little achey, nothing major, took an ice bath when I got home (aiyeeee!!!).
And, as a bonus this week: I beat my icky 14 mile run by like 15 minutes!
It's all good, people.
