Well, I did it. I went for another run. I didn’t want to. But, Shawn was trash talking me, so I was like Bring It!
The temperature was up to 47 this afternoon and the sun was shining, so I was able to wear the one and only pair of running tights I have. I got dressed, and when I came downstairs Shawn said (and I quote) “Whoa. You look hardcore.” Sweet. So, I made him take a picture, because I didn’t want to let you guys down again.
When I started off I knew it was going to be a good run, because the very first song on my iPod was “Sexy Back.” How in the whole world did my iPod know I was bringin’ sexy back? It probably remembered what I was wearing last time.
I have to say, it was an easier run. There weren’t even any dogs to flip off or teenage boys to spit loogies at. Oh wait. That was the other way around, wasn’t it? Whatever. Oh, and I figured out what was up with my Nike sensor. So, this time I knew where I was at with my miles, and I apologized to the voice in my ear bud for calling her a whore last time. She didn’t seem to mind though.
Here’s the breakdown: 4 miles, time of 39:35, pace of 9:53, and 500 calories burned according to my heart rate monitor.
I consider today’s run a success! Only 2.2 more miles and I’ll be up to the distance for the 10K. I’m not sure I’m stopping at the 10K though. Apparently, somebody thinks I’m running a half marathon with her in August. Maybe I will, but only because there’s going to be a pool party afterwards. I wonder if I can bring a blow up doll for a floatation device in the pool?
