The long sloowww run and it felt so good

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!!

You better run it in 4 hours because I have been working out hard...I can wallop the heck out of the YMCA gym wall with a medicine ball on a rope... I was picked as the person most wanted to escort someone thru a dark alley for protection. So now since you have made that rash promise you MUST for your own wellbeing do the run in 4 hours. Congratulations for your great run and your clean carpets! I myself cannot do anymore running on Sunday because I have been falling asleep in church and my husband has to keep nudging me awake. Keep up the good work!!!!
