Wednesday~ Early morning solo run. I had visions of running 8 – 10 miles this morning. The only thing was I was alone! 😦 So, I was not about to run at dark thirty by myself. Not safe! I needed Andi there in case somebody wanted to cause some trouble – she’s pretty
squirrley tough! I set out around 6:30 ish or so. I wanted to start at 6:15 ish, but I procrastinated on where to start my run. I wanted a slight change of scenery so I jumped in the truck and drove about 5 minutes down the street! I hoped to keep my heart rate in the 160’s for this run. According to my Garmin heart rate avg. it was 159. Come on! I blame that on my first mile where I forgot to stop it when I was messing with my broken MP3 player. My HR avg. for mile 1 was 140. Totally lame. After that things went really well. My moving time miles were pretty consistent. I am not a consistent pacer at all. ( Go ME!)
After I ran a bit over 3 miles I figured I better turn around so I didn’t make Matt late for work. Good thing too, because the whole house was asleep when I got home!! dang. I could have gone at least 8 miles for sure. Booo! I finished in 1:03 ( 9:44) average. Lately, this is good for me. I had 2 minor vocal cord almost mishaps. I guess that’s good. They weren’t full-blown or anything. I got that going for me. It was only 73 degrees outside, but the humidity must have been through the roof. It was moist to say the least. (TWSS) I wanted to get my workout done because it might rain later. I pretty much looked as if I ran in the rain anyway…so whatever.
In other news. The new Mat Kearney CD is out today. In case you were wondering. Here is the video. I like the clapping. So does miles. He likes to sing this during breakfast. I don’t make him stop. 🙂
It’s a catchy tune, but in a good way. Enjoy.
