Ran 4 miles today in around 49 minutes (did 4:1 intervals run:walk).
It was 87 degrees and very humid.
Used to be able to run this distance in 40 minutes. But I will get there again, one day at a time. Also, this is a hilly route around Loose Park in Kansas City so that slowed me down. Since I'm training for the Nike marathon in San Francisco I need to train on the hills. Bought a Garmin GPS monitor which told me when I was going fast or slow. Lots of fun! Not the run necessarily, but having a pace monitor throughout the run.
Got to get past the whole body image thing with lots of skinny minny runners out there passing me by. But at least I ran.
