Gorgeous evening for a tempo

I'd been antsy to get out and run this all day.  So antsy, I probably should have done it yesterday. :P

I totally overdressed for this in a long sleeve and capris (would have probably been more comfortable in a tee).  I also took a couple of things for a test drive.  My new coffee socks - which were fine though felt a bit thin compared to some of my other running socks.


and the new strap on my Garmin.  The strap came right apart after my LSD on Sunday so I decided to finally put on the velcro strap that is smaller and see if I can't improve my comfort a bit.  Made a huge difference to not have it sliding around on my little wrist anymore.
 
I ran my usual 6k loop around town...the problem was that it appears to have shrunken in the last 6 months.  I ended up extending a couple of sections to make up the full 6k so I don't know what happened there.

Done!





Now I am so off to bed to read.  I think I earned me some quality Game of Thrones time tonight.

Sweet dreams and happy running!

  1. Dear god...I just got back into running 2 days ago... I thought today was too windy. :-( I'm off to the RR for tomorrows free run. .... Heehee! Also, I run exactly half your speed. :-(

  2. Welcome back to the wonderful world of running, hun! You're gonna have a blast running with the RR group. Are you training for anything now?

    As for speed - it's all relative. This was speedy for me, but I am trying to push myself so I can meet a time goal in Vancouver (still not sure it'll happen). I am much more comfortable taking my time :) In the end - the first across the finish line and the last across get the same medal :)

  3. I'm at the stage where I'm just trying to run a full 1 km! I can walk for hours, but running -- not there yet at all, but I'm trying. Reading about your times and distances is so motivating!

  4. You'll get there. Just over two years ago - I didn't think I'd ever be able to do it. I truly believe that anyone can do it by taking their time and being patient with themselves. Good luck on your journey!

  6. The Garmin? Yep - I'd have to agree. I bought my first one the week before my first 5k and was instantly addicted to having too much information about every run. I only ever use the time/pace/distance features, though. It also has a heart rate monitor and the ability to program workouts and intervals into it...I just haven't found the need to use those yet.
