So, I could barely walk this week, and I was pretty sure I would not run this weekend. But this morning I felt good enough to give it a try, so I decided to treat the Austin half as a long run with a few thousand close friends. The results:
Avg pace 8:48
Avg HR 148 (!!!)
And the best part was coming up on Kathleen in the last 5 miles and poking her with a sharp stick every time she wanted to slow down! (Actually, I was nicer than that, but I'll let her tell the tale of how she beat me to the line).
It was a very, very good weekend.
