Out towarsd Mini Gu corner. I felt tired and pace was supper labored and I was just running in Quicksand. Well, it felt that way anyway. My average pace was slow at 9:35 with a total time of 58:38. Lower body weights to finish up. Good end to the week but I have a long way to go, I'm struggling getting back into shape and its going to take some time. I'm learning patients.

See you Monday.
