2302 + 6.2 = 2308.2

Lovely 10k on the moors, in the sunshine, and no people around. All happy until I went up Sharpitor, which is ~400m high and depressingly steep.

A run on Saturday and a run this morning. Missouri is too goddamned humid. Even at 6:30am. It's stupid.

Nearly gave up after half a mile when my back started to spasm. Getting older sucks - don't do it kids! (although the alternatives aren't that attractive, either)

Out of curiosity, what's a good time to run 10k in? I'm currently averaging 44 minutes as a 5'9" 23-year-old male. Could probably be better, but what am I aiming for?
