Loosening things up

I ran two this morning just to grease the joints and warm-up the muscles for tomorrow. I started out at a pace that felt comfortable. I was singing Lost in Germany in my head. I assumed I was at about marathon pace. I hit my watch at the first mile and looked down and it said I had just run an 8:05 … WAY to fast, “Slow down Tommy”. So I slacked off a bit and ran the second mile at a pace that felt slower … 8:20 at the finish.

I cannot run a marathon at that pace. I need to slow down. I don’t want to run with a pace group tomorrow, but I don’t think I have a choice for the first couple of miles. I don’t want to blow up.

It felt good to move again this morning after a couple of days off.

I'm ready to run Twenty6.2 ………..

Good luck tomorrow. The bloggers have a sign and we're getting together for a group pic sometime before 6...then each to his own.
