I stuck to my guns and went for a 5 mile run today. Considering that I don’t remember the last time I ran (how bad is that when I have a half marathon coming up in T minus 6 weeks?), it felt pretty darn good! It was a gorgeous, partly sunny day but the temperature was mild, and there was no wind to slow me down. I even ran most of it, stopping for only a 1 minute catch-my-breath walk every ten minutes or so. I am very proud (and relieved) that I was able to master that distance, even after so many weeks not running. Hopefully I can keep it up and also add some more mileage to my weekend runs so that the 13.1 miles on October 18 won’t be so much of a shock. I don’t expect to break any records, but I don’t want to be crawling across the finish line either!
