7.5 miles. hood route to legacy trail and back. 5:30 am start. started slow, but then got into a good groove. I'm starting to feel some fitness come back. There's a point where you reach the "sore, but good" feeling. that's where I am right now. I need increase the base, and do more speed work. But i feel like i am progressing towards that at the right pace. I don't want to do too much too soon. Oh, and most importantly, no emergency bathroom stops this morning.
