Saturday.... TATURs are holding Route 66 mock marathon/half-marathon. It's been 4 days since I ran at all. I've been trying to get myself back to good health. I'm doing everything except make a trip to the doctor. The good thing is I'm not running any fever. My stomach and throat is giving me all sorts of heck.
I woke up saturday morning around 6am. I felt ok, and started preparing for a long, slow run. So I thought I'll go and run at least 15 miles. If I'm feeling bad, I'll just shut it down.
I started out slow,,,started at the very back. I kept up a steady pace up to 11 miles...felt pretty good. I was doing a 9:13 pace...I thought, dang it... I'm going to fast. 11 mile was our turnaround. On the way back, I slowed down quite abit..specially the last 3 miles. I ended up with 9:53 pace for the last 11 miles. Dang it again... I was still going abit fast. At the end, I felt good. My stomach did give me some problems around mile 18, I walked it off, and it did get better later on. I went home and took a long nap. Finally, I'm getting better.
Sunday, I'll do a short 10 miler.
