The last few days have felt pretty good. Saturday and Sunday I ran medium runs (6-8 miles) at an 8:40 pace. Monday, I ran 14 at a 9 minute pace when I was with folks, and a 10ish pace when I was on my own for the last few miles at the end. Today I span and swam. I am not feeling fast but I am feeling reasonably fit. I bumped into my friend C_ at the gym this morning, and she asked how I was doing. I said, "I've finally left the zone of Bleh!!"
This is most emphatically not to be confused with a return to form. But it is a return to feeling healthy. I've moved from the zone of Bleh to the zone of "meh."
The big question remains: will running a Marathon in a month help me move forward or set me back. .
