Despite working most of the day, it was still a great day. I was pretty tired when I got home. I knew I had to run, but actually fell asleep for about an hour in my running clothes. I got up and turned my Garmin on when it beeped and said low battery. Well, that was just great! I will not run if I don't know how far I'm going! So I charged it for about twenty minutes and hoped it would last.
I was walking for about 5 minutes outside when it beeped low battery again. I turned it off until I was ready to run. I was already outside and it was getting late. It was almost six and I knew I would be out for over an hour. With fall here, it is getting dark at about 7 now. I'm not a fan of running in the dark just because I feel a bit off balance. I turned my watch on and started running. It beeped the low battery warning at me, but I just figured I would go until it died and then I could just figure out how far I went by mapping out the rest.
The first mile was really tough. I kept getting crazy stomach cramps and stopped about three times until they passed. After that pain was gone I was feeling a bit better. I listened to Jillian Michaels podcast. Her and her cohost are so funny. It really made the time fly by. And every time I wanted to give up I would just think about Jillian and what she would say to me.
On the way back I couldn't believe how huge the moon was! I tried to take a picture of it (again) and it never does it justice.
After I got home and I logged my runs on my 3 websites and wrote it in my running journal ( a little over-kill, I know) I jumped in the shower. I hadn't realized that I had sweat through the two shirts I was wearing! I knew I was sweating a bit, but I most mostly a bit chilly and was thankful I had thought to wear the long sleeves over a short sleeve T-shirt.
The rest of the night I just hung out, caught up on blogs, and watched Boardwalk Empire. Next week's episode looks good!
Off to bed! Early day tomorrow!
