I ran a few times throughout the week, but already I can't remember what days and what my mileage was.  It was never much.  Maybe 3 times 3 miles. 

I walked a little during this run, starting at about mile 7.  I would run a mile + .04 then walk .06.  I did that 3 times.  Why?  No reason.  I just needed it, and that seemed like a good plan to keep the walking at a minimum.  I had to run home (stopped at 8.35 miles) to drink some water and drop off my sweatshirt.  After that, I ran 2 full miles, walked .06, then ran most of the way home.  I did stop to fix my socks, which seemed to be bunching up weird in one of my shoes.

I am doing my annual half next week.  I'm not in racing form.  Last year I finished just under 1:55, and I also wasn't in racing form then.  This year, I will be slower.  I will be surprised if I come in under 2 hours.  Just the result of lackadaisical training.
