I finally broke out of the 40 lap rut this morning. I ran 60 laps, which is 8 miles. It felt really good. It was a faster pace than my run yesterday, and yet seemed easier. I just had more bounce this morning. I hope that it will last me all weekend, because it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to run. It's too cold and slick out, and the gym hours aren't really convenient.
