Accidentally ran/walked a half marathon yesterday!

Yesterday lovely mr.ncot took the boys out for the afternoon and I faffed around, before finally realising at 1530 that I should go out for my long run (before the light went). Decide to walk up the uetliberg, walk along top from Uto Kulm to Felsenegg, then walk down to Adliswil, then run back home along the Sihl. I definitely didn't realize how far it was.

Was doing okay on my run 5mins, walk 1min routine (although i walked up and down), got halfway back along the river, before my poor little legs gave out. Switched to walking 5mins, running 1 minute and got caught in the dark. Finally got home at about 1930 and thought my legs were going to drop off. Then realised I had pretty much covered 13 miles in 3hrs 14minutes :-) So opps, pretty much did a half marathon. Don't wonder I ache so much today!

Half signed up today for the Zurich 10k in April 6th - goal is under 1hr 10minutes. Have been enjoying my new podcast "marathon talk" and a new facebook group called "Run Mummy Run" and my new iphone app PaceDJ (which finds music on your iphone which matches your beats per minute - it even measures your running pace for you!)
