My one irk was my Garmin stopped showing the stats and showed only the "% battery remaining" screen. Has anyone had that happen to them before? So when I started fiddling with it I stopped the workout. Grrr. So started it again, then accidentally put it on "distance workout" and it was limited to 5 miles so it appeared to stop after 5 miles but I chose not to mess with it. It continued to do the splits.
At the end, I was spent. The last mile was so hard. I kept thinking, how am I going to run another 8.2 miles? That's another hour running! Also, I feel like I've gotten so slow. I used to run 8:30 miles easily now we're pushing 10 mins a mile. I'm hoping it's just the heat and humidity of the summer.
In happier news, my dh and I had our 12th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. My dh had order for me a medal hanger for all my running medals. I love it! Especially since I'm not a jewelery type of girl.

1. Anyone have a Garmin that acts up on a run? What do you do?
2. Hip problems from running? I think it's my hip flexor or my piriformis muscle.
3. Anyone have doubts about finishing a marathon?
