Once again, Mother Nature has rained on my running plans! I set my alarm last night to wake up early this morning and get in a run before going to work. Instead of waking to my radio, I woke to thunder and lightening, quickly followed by pouring rain.
This is getting old. Yesterday it was oppressively hot and humid--no running in that. I did manage to run on Friday morning--a five miler. It felt good, although I quickly worked up an ugly sweat! Then I went to the gym and biked another 5 miles. I have to get my bike down from the garage so I can ride the trails around town. Help me Bud--I can't get it down by myself!
So here I am again. A new week, with a weather forecast that makes me grin from ear to ear--no rain all week and cooler temperatures. Yeah! All of my running clothes are clean and ready to go. Here's to a week of 20 miles (do I dare think I could do more?) and getting ready to start my half-marathon training, courtesy of Fitness magazine.
I've been looking at the Garmin 110 GPS watch. It's my new obsession. I struggle to find places to run around town that will get me a decent distance, yet stay safe and keep me from being bored. The Garmin 110 watch is simple--it has a GPS that tracks how far you run, and your running time. I can just start running, and keep track of my mileage by looking at my watch, instead of trying to figure it out on mapmyrun.com. I'm saving my pennies for this one! Hopefully I'll have it before the end of the summer.
Well, back to work after a week off. My running may not have been up to plan, but I did manage to get things checked off my to-do list. I also read a few books, too. You can see my reviews on my other blog, http://bookaliciousbabe.blogspot.com. I attempted to write down all the books I've managed to read so far this year, and I think I made a pretty good dent.
Off to have breakfast and then off to work. I think I probably have a lot of stuff to sort through when I get there--a busy day ahead! Have a great week.
