Yesterday, while on my WK7 R3 run, I passed a tortoise that was on the side of the trail. I had to slow down and take a photo just to prove that I actually do run faster than a tortoise. Well, that's the story I am sticking to, because the little creature wasn't moving so it is possible that it could have still left me in its dust in a foot race.
My run was quite good, and I was able to run 3 miles up and 3 miles back with just a five minute warm-down/up walk break in between. I am not sure how long it took me, but it was at least 35 minutes for each run. At this point my focus is on running distance and not duration or speed. My new goal for the upcoming three sessions is to reach where the trail intersects with a road. I believe that mark is around 3.5 miles. Hopefully, during the last three sessions of the program I will be able to reach 4 miles. All while going at a slightly faster than tortoise pace.
