Couch to 10k

I ran 6.24 miles in 1 hour, 16 minutes, and 19 seconds for a 12:13/mi pace. Lady Gaga has impeccable timing on my shuffle; that last mile was rough. And running in 85F sunny weather with 80% humidity and no breeze can only be described as torture. I am amazed at my pace because I thought I did a lot of walking on the last leg.

I am officially a couch to 10k-er in 10 weeks minus 2 for my ankle to heal. And I've not followed any pre-set plan, just doing my own thing. Awesome sauce.

After a long, ice-cold shower, heavy stretching, and some self-inflicted deep tissue massage on my sore muscles, I am feeling quite good.
