Five Months Later...

It's been five months since the marathon. I can't believe how much it took out of me.
I finally strapped on the Garmin for a walk yesterday. I've been walking the dog, but no where near the four miles I was doing this time last year. I did four miles last night with some friends. It took just over an hour. 4mph was my run/walk last year. Last night felt fast, and it was all walking (I never was a fast runner). there were a bunch of hills, and my ankles are a little tender this morning, but I feel great. I was able to do it - I was worried I wouldn't keep up. These gals walk regularly. I was able to carry on conversation and keep the pace (although it felt fast).

I am glad the Garmin still works - I hadn't worn it since the race. I forgot how inspiring that one peice of equipment is! I will wear it when i walk the dog tonight and go. Let's see if it makes me go more...(I did a total of just over six miles yesterday since I walked the dog before I met the girls.)
