I had a good run today (well, Thursday; I'm writing this after work and it's now technically Friday). I did 4 miles again and did it faster than Tuesday's 4 miles. Yes, I'm still insanely slower than I was before the weight-gain (and before I was pretty darn slow), but I am seeing progress, which is all I can ask for.
The jeans are still tight. When-oh-when will they feel better?
