Here is today's training route - 15 miles completed in 1 hour and 15 minutes (the map calculates 14.4 miles but I did a small lap near my house to make up the difference.) Last year I was only up to 10.6 miles at this stage in the training. So far I am tracking with the advanced plan I designed for myself.
No Llama sightings to report. The only intense sphincter clenching moment came at the train crossing - I'd love to ask the conductor if he blew the horn just for me.
