We had it easy tonight which included a 1 mile warm up, then 4 miles at half-marathon-pace (whatever that is for me now, I don’t really know), and then 1 mile cool down. I am very appreciative that Karen S., the coach, let me join this group. I’m the only one she let in from the short course. There were many people in class whose faces I recognize but whose names I’m at a loss. It’ll take me some time to get them figured out. For the 4 miles I really didn’t push it, but when I got near the 2 mile mark I thought I’d give a try. So although I was worried about my left hamstring I did the best I could. When I got done in 34:40 (8:40/M) I was happy and getting back to my car I felt so good that I could run and enjoy myself that I got chills. It was a good thing, a very good thing.
