Ran 18 miles down the STG course this morning. We had a large group, Mike, Bill, Logan, Steve, Aaron, James, Marcie and another girl.
The pace started off quicker from the start than I was hoping. My legs were feeling really tight before the run. I didn't feel very good on yesterday's run, but figured I better get a long run in, so I forced myself to come over.
After the first few miles, Aaron, Steve, and Mike took off. The rest of us hung back, but kept going at a pretty good pace.
Actually once I got going I felt pretty good. I ran the first 15 pretty solid (6:35 pace) then pretty much dogged it the last 3 miles. By the time I hit town my legs were pretty beat up, so I just ran easy back to the park, Bill caught up to me and helped pass the time.
Overall, good run. I'm slowly starting to get back into shape. I just wish it wasn't such a slow painful process. I am looking forward to summer and more time to train.
If a guy was smart he would just stay in shape year round, but that has not been the path taken by this Little Buddha. I get in shape by the marathon in October, but by Christmas I'm back to being out of shape and overweight.
2 miles easy with Sunny, pushed Jarren in the stroller while Jansen.
