Unfortunately the weather has been too hot in Florida over the past two weeks to do much training. Couldn't even find an internet cafe, until tonight!

But feel very rested and cant wait to get back to start training again.

Sounds like a decent sesh to me Laura...

Trotted round for just under 4 miles at about 6:50 per mile pace. Legs felt like they were moving quite quickly - but they weren't! - slightly alarming.
