Marathon Journal: 4 Miles
February 13, 2010
Four miles with no real problems today. I felt a little “heart-attacky” at the first half mile, but I slowed down and it went away. I get a jumpy heart from time to time, not sure what it is but I’ll probably die from it just as soon as I write about how harmless it feels.
My cold is almost gone so the lungs aren’t bothering me so much, I mostly just feel drained.
Today’s inspiration was provided by the Beloved Mrs. TenNapel who ran 20 miles today! She beat my 20 mile time by over 15 minutes so that’s a new household record. I have no doubt that she’ll finish the LA Marathon quite a ways ahead of me. It becomes more and more clear that we won’t be able to run side by side, which I’m probably more comfortable with than Angie.
