So Far From Where I've Been

First off, I'm crackin up ovah here that I slipped in a comment about the Captain and everyone focused on the bed bugs. HAAAAAAAAAAA I guess I was smart that way.

Ok, on to running. I've mentioned before that I have become a weekend warrior with the running. I try to get about 6 or so 7 miles in on the weekend. So this Saturday, this lovely windy, brisk Saturday, I decided to bust out the ol' Garmin and go for 10 miles.

I know there is a race in my future - another marathon. Probably not until Fall... more details later. So with that in the back of my mind, I want to get my mileage back up and comfortable. My 10 was not so comfortable. Actually, I can only say that I ran 9. I walked the last mile home. But I was happy that nothing ached or hurt or anything like that - I was just plain ol' outta shape. My average time was 9:54 min/mile. That's 1:26 min/mile SLOWER than my 2008 marathon pace. hellllllllo?????????? How quickly one can LOSE IT!

But at least I know where I'm starting from.

Now I just need to get my butt on the scale to confirm the other damage I've done.
Stay tuned for that exciting post.

Good for you for being able to bust out 10 miles (I will count that last mile that you walked) despite being a weekend warrior. And your pace is still pretty good!

The bedbugs grossed me out so much I wasn't even able to comment. Stuff like that...*shudder*

Busted. No judgement here, though. Trust me...

Get in those miles girl -- there's a bridesmaid dress with your name on it! ;)

I SOO hear you on how quickly you can lose it. You'll get it back quickly though I'm sure! I just signed up for the Chicago marathon in October, so I may be hitting you up for first marathon advice!
