7.3 miles

Last night I ran/jogged 7.3 miles in 1 hour and 11 minutes. The farthest I had ran at one time before this was slightly more than 4 miles. At no point throughout the run/jog was I even winded, which surprised me.
I ended up having to walk 3 times because of knee pain. The road turned to shit at about mile 4 and earlier in the run I also had to run in the ditch for close to 1 mile. The shitty road really hurts my knees.

Anyway, I'm still relatively happy with that time, dissapointed in my knees. I should be able to run the 6.5 mile this weekend, but I will pay for it after I'm done since my leg of the run is that shitty part of the road for the entire 6.5 miles.
