Today was a good long run, took it at a pretty slow by steady pace and it felt good. I walked 2 miles, then ran 17, and walked one (total 20 miles.) My 2 mile walk was around 30 min, then my 17 mile run was 3:30 on the dot, and then a 15 min walk.
My 17 mile pace was 12:21 – (I’m giving myself leeway for being on my period) -I’m not discouraged, it felt really good and I had so much energy left for the entire day – I steam cleaned the carpets, mopped the floors, cleaned the entire house, did all the laundry. I also went to target and did some grocery shopping.
I am so ready for Chicago – I doubted myself for a while but I am back in shape. I know when I run Chicago I will run a 4 hour marathon. I will push myself, it will be hard – but I WILL do it, and if I don’t I will allow all of you to beat the crap out of me when I return!!
