Tonight was nutso outside! I originally went for a quick walk at lunch. 1.25 miles and it was FREEZING! Somewhere along the line my mind said “oh it’s going to be 50 today, you don’t need a coat.” Guess what, at lunch it was 37. Whoops!
Tonight it was up to 49 so I decided to take my run outdoors again. We’ve had some crazy wind lately but it is a lot harder to run in than I remembered.
I did an outdoor run of 3.0 miles in 27:14! I reaaaally want to set a goal time for my first 5k race but at the same time I’m a little scared to throw it out there… Soo 28:10 anyone? I am running with a friend and I promised not to leave her even though she told me to. So we’ll see what happens in the end.
I tried out my new watch tonight. So much freedom without my phone! I always check it for pace, laps, etc and it felt so good to just run until I was done without worrying about my time. At some point I would like to get a nice GPS running watch, but for now I’m going to rock out with my new cheapo Casio Watch I got on Amazon. Don’t ask me how to do anything but start and stop it. I did get lucky and figure out how to clear it too! Laps are beyond me but I am determined to figure it out. I was cut off from “beeping” on my lunch break yesterday!
