|The wind tunnel at Newhall Point (road on right)|
I finished the 5 miles in 55:12, which I thought wasn't bad given the wind and the usual stoppages for 4x4s and boy racers who felt unable to share the road with me. I had no pain or even niggling in my ankles, calves, or other places. I managed to run fast enough for the 3 tempo miles to challenge myself cardio-wise. And, even though I was wearing my 12mm Guide 4s, I was running so lightly that I couldn't hear my footfalls. No clomping, no heel drag, no scuffling. I even unplugged myself from the iPod so that I could enjoy how quiet I was.
As Adam would say, the real test will be how I feel tomorrow and the next day. Tonight, though, I feel very proud of myself!
