First successful attempt at a full running workout

It’s been 14 days since my last sustained running workout (over 1.25 miles). Since then, I’m weighing in at 167.5 pounds to start (5 lbs below last gym weigh-in for a longer run) and 166 pounds to finish.

Today’s workout was 7 miles in 1:04:14 (9’11” pace). Constant level 4 pain, aching, but no sharp pain. My back is a little tight now, and I have a slight limp going. No medication during the run, though, and things feel significantly better than from my 1.25 mile attempt last week.

Was able to pick up tempo to 8’00” miles with ease at end–actually felt easier than the slower pace.
