This is my 3rd long run. I went 5.5 miles in 1:12:40 for an average speed of 4.5 mph, finally a significant improvement. Average pulse was 133 bpm, temperatures were in the low 40's, no wind. I felt like I could have kept going for a long time.
This time my dog Kenya came along and while I expected this to make my run harder because of the occasional pulling on her Flexi-Leash it turned out to work really well.
Now I'm really going to enjoy my Christmas Eve dinner, a healthy version of beef sausage, lots of herbs and spices, no salt or sugar, some dark leafy greens and some winter squash.
Merry Christmas, may your exercise outweigh your eating and your joy be greater than the number of gifts under your tree.
