12.16 miles This Morning

I am getting prepared to run a 1/2 marathon in 19 days.  On Saturday Dan and I drove up to where it starts 8 miles up the canyon.  Wow that is FAR and quite steep.  I am a little concerned if my knees and back can handle descending 1000 feet over the 8 miles.  The last 5 miles are in town and pretty flat. Anyway, I needed to know if my body could go that far at any speed.  Last week I did 8.5 miles and my goal for this week was 10 miles.  I did better than that!  I did a 1 mile warm-up, ran 9.5 miles then did a co0l-down walk of 1.66.  Yeah ME!!!  I averaged 10:05 for the 9.5 miles running so I am pretty confident that I can do the 1/2 marathon with no tr0uble.  Next week I’ll try to do 12 miles again or maybe 14?!
