Back on the wagon

Ok so I took a little bit more time off then I wanted to. However I was listening to my body.
Things have been really busy lately as well so I have not had time to sit down and think about what to write.
Just letting everyone know that all is well.
I started back on the road 2 weeks ago. I started the work week with 10 miles and ended the weekend with a LSD 20 miler. This was a group organized run, so I went out early. I started about 20 minutes earlier then the beginning pack as I knew I was going to go slow. I enjoy running with a group but with this being my first long run back I did not want to push myself. I stayed true to a 8 min run 1 min walk routine. It was working great until the group caught up to me. It made me want to run faster then I reliezed what was going on and slowed down.
I had a great 20 mile run doing it in 4 hours 11 mins. Afterwords I took an ice bath and nap. So I am not where I want to be with my running as I can tell my pace has slowed down. Well due to being off my feet for a couple of weeks it is what it is.
Well I need to get going doing other things. Hope to post more later this week.
