My posts tend to be a bit "this is awful", so here is a better one for a change. W8R1 completed, felt good all the way through and ran through the 5 minute warm down (warmed down afterwards, natch). Didn't have to vault any errant dogs, run with cats or throw my phone into a muddy puddle. Not a huge distance covered, but that isn't my goal. Thanks to you all for your previous encouragement: it played a big part in my getting to week 8.
