Still Alive

Yes, I survived my 20 mile run yesterday.

It wasn’t pretty, but it wasn’t as bad as I feared.  It wasn’t good either. As I told Jen, it was just sort of mediocre.

(Things that aren’t mediocre – Jen.  She ran the last 10 with me and put up with my whining.  She is awesome.)

Around mile 15 or so, I started to stiffen up a bit.  Not sure what to do about that except to stop and stretch, perhaps (which I didn’t do).  And I think from about 17 on, it was a slog.  Not a slow slog, mind you – I was pretty much keeping pace, but it just felt slow.

So while I’ve lost some speed from last year, maybe this year’s marathon won’t be too bad after all.  If I can get through 20, I can do 26.2 with the added motivation of the medal and the pride that comes with it.  Now if only the weather will cooperate.
