Done. Now here I had to take a few breaks. OK with me. I was not going to stressed out about it.

I met my friend, CN, who is also training for the Chicago Marathon to run on Saturday morning. It was perfect weather, low 60s and overcast. She had to run 14 miles. I told her that I only had to do 8 but depending on how I felt I might run more. Well, it turned out that I felt really good up until about mile 11. We took several walking breaks because both of our quads were very sore.
I was out late last night and did not make it to yoga this morning.
Total miles ran this week is 27.80.
Overall it was a good week. I am very proud of myself for doing all of my runs this week.
