I believe a "country mile" is considered as " a very long way", more than an actual mile. Kind of like a "bakers dozen" is 13, rather than 12. In any case - I managed to run a country mile today. That, for me, was 12 miles in the country.
9 min average pace, 1hr 48 mins overall and just over 920' of climbing on the rolling hills. Was a bit of a struggle at times, especially the last mile or so. But something that I feel good about.
Total for the week: 4 runs totalling 33 1/2 miles for just over 5 hours of running. I have not run that distance in a week since the 3rd week of May which was my Marathon week. So, I am happy with a good week. Not sure if I want to, or can, get any more distance each week - will see how things go.
