It looks like I may be doing the longer portions of the relay, which are 4 miles long for a total of 8ish. This week will focus on 3.5 miles as the minimum. Today I ran 3.5 on the dreadmill in 40:10. Hopefully this will improve as the week goes on, and my reward will be a workout free and eat whatever the hell I want Saturday.
As for "shoot me now" news, the car needs a new starter and other shit. $590+ so far. Lovely.
