Yes, I ran 20 miles again. How did it go? Much better that two weeks ago. I got to the lake around 6am but waited a little because it was still very dark and I was not going to run alone in total darkness. Ten minutes later I was cruising along. Great weather. I wore a long sleeve shirt because it was chilly but yet perfect for running.
I did make a few stops along the way but managed to finish in 4:06:20. The best part was that I ran without my iPod. It just so happens that something is wrong with the headphones and I cannot hear the music on the left side. So annoying!!! I was “entertained” with the lakefront view, the sounds from the cars along the lake front, and of course the conversations by the other runners. However, I don’t think I will have all of this at the Hartford Marathon so I definitely need to get a new set of headphones. By the way, my legs feel fine. A little sore but I can actually walk around without limping. Definitely a good sign.
I can’t believe that the marathon is in less than 3 weeks. Yes, I am ready to tackle this race!!!
On a different note, I am making beer bread from “Tastefully Simple”. Yes, it is made with beer and it is THE MOST DELICIOUS bread and so easy to make. Just add a 12 oz. bottle of beer to the mix, stir for 20-30 seconds, spread batter in a loaf pan and bake for 50-55 minutes. I love eating this with spinach dip. This bread is for my book club this afternoon. I will do a taste test and hopefully I won’t eat it all.
Fantastic! Sounds like a nice run. Sorry about your headphones breaking but maybe running without them helped you practice your mental strength more! That bread looks wonderful.
Great job on the long run! I'm so jealous of your weather. You're ready to rock and roll!
Good job on the long run! Good luck on your marathon!
