Someday this WILL get easier

Today was my first long run since the Hippie Chick Half. It turns out that I may be running another half marathon that I hadn't originally planned on in just a few weeks, so slacking off for a while before starting to train for the half in the fall is no longer an option - even though I wasn't really planning on slacking off anyway - I didn't really want to go through the torture of building the miles back up starting in a few weeks. But let me tell you folks, today wasn't pretty... is it really possible for training to fall that far off in just a couple of weeks? I got through 10 miles today which puts me just a little short ( < 1 mile) of my 25-26 running miles per week goal (that goal is over the course of 3 days, plus an additional 3 days of cross-training). But as you can see from the time listed below, it wasn't a great pace and now that the stiff muscles are starting to set in, I might need a little anti-inflammatory action before the day is through.

Not sure if I'll try to make up that last mile+ or not. Hmm...

Today's Run

Which half "might" you do? Any chance it's the Run for the Roses in Sherwood on 6/4?

Actually, it's the Vancouver USA Marathon/Half Marathon on 6/19. My SIL is scheduled to run it w/ my brother, but he's most likely going to bail out due to an injury, so she'd like me to do it with her.

No slacking off for you! [I said that in my Soup Nazi voice]
