Miles on the 'mill.

12.5 miles on the 'mill today.

That's right: 12.5. Twelve point five.

A mere .6 away from the half marathon and that will be run in the lovely environs of Flushing Meadow Park in Queens. I can totally handle it.

For real. If I can run 12.5 on the 'mill, 13.1 on real roads should be a piece of cake. Of course, I'll be pushing harder in the race, striving to make a time goal that is much faster than I ran today. But still.

In case you're wondering, no, I hadn't planned to run that long on the treadmill. I had grand plans of running outside yesterday. But my baby is sick and he was in rough shape yesterday so my long run was out. Neither of us slept that much last night so I wanted to be nearby in case he needed to nurse (which he did) or in case my increasing sleep deficit finally caught up with me (which it didn't).

I ran this one nice and slow for the first 9 miles and then picked up the pace, running mile 10 at 8:30 and then slowing back down for mile 11, finishing the run in 2:00:30. Afterward, I ate and ate and I plan to eat more. Good thing my parents are cooking dinner tonight!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
