Running along the Limmat | 67.00

I braved the number 2 tram and bus 80 to meet katcolorado at Tüffenwies, just by the limmat river and I was EARLY :-) We were so busy gossiping that our warm up was longer than intended, but then we started running. I'm so glad we did the 11k again but it was a hard one today. Running for 15 minutes at a time is hard work, but I'm glad we've improved so much that we're able to do that. All the little cafes along the river are starting to open up now and the river looked very inviting.

There were lots of other runners out and about and every time we passed some, we had to decide whether they were running faster than us (most of them were!) and I'd make some remark to make us feel better: "Yes, she's running my faster than us, but she really needs a good sports bra - at least our bosoms are under control!" *hehe*

Talking of which I was really struggling by the end of the run because my whole chest was just really really hurting. So we struggled today but we succeeded. Hurrah for us ! PLUS, I earnt 497 calories :-)
