I only had once chance to get in a long run this weekend--during the afternoon yesterday. I am speaking all weekend long, so I knew I would really need it. This was my first run since the Austin trip so I decided to take it a little easy. I got in five good miles of tempo pacing and then walked an additional four afterward. It was great to get back in the saddle.
Meanwhile, the weirdness of the Austin Marathon continues: I got an e-mail from the company that took the official photos for the race saying that none of mine turned out. There were photographers at three different stages of the race in addition to the finish line . None of the photos turned out. Par for the course, I guess.
