12 miles checked off the list. 9:26 pace.
It wasn't easy.
But I burned 1300 calories and I will use all those up tonight at a BBQ!
Since I don't live on the beach anymore, I drove down there at about 6:45am. I had an apple and a hard boiled egg white, then hit the road. Parking is always a bitch, but I figured it was early enough that I wouldn't have a problem. I was planning on parking at a certain persons house because he isn't there and I have his key - just in case I need water or bathroom or anything like that. Well there was no damn parking. So I drove about 20 blocks backtracking to my other friends house. No luck again. So I drove back to the other house. I don't know why. I was just not thinking and frustrated.
So I get all set up - dorky ass fanny pack, water, iPod, Garmin. Oh shit... my headphones are broken again! I love my headphones because they stay in my ears, but I swear they break about every 4 months! If I hadn't driven and dealt with that morning drama, I probably would have thrown in the towel. But NO, I had to get this run in and prove to myself that I'm back in training mode. So I toughed it out with NO music.
The run was ok. There were some parts where I wanted to just stop and walk. But I didn't. I didn't realize how the music really pushes me and keeps my mind occupied. Some body parts were tight (hips) and sore (knees). I'm definitely craving some Bikram now (going tomorrow morning).
Still thinking about the table. Might go get tomorrow after yoga, but get chairs at IKEA to save a little moola. Oh, I'm dragging my friend SZ to yoga for the first time. She is the one that ran the 5k with me last weekend. I love that I'm getting her into all my things :) She has a truck so we can get the table after class. And she's handy so she can help me put it together too! Thanks SZ!!!
