Today was day 2 of running with the Garmin outside. I better prepared myself today though. I wore my cold weather shirt hubby got me for Christmas, as well as my new running gloves (also a gift from hubby). I always fear that I'll be cold, so I wore a jacket over the running shirt. Apparently, I didn't need that. LOL! Ah well, live and learn, right?
Parked at the same spot as Tuesday, got out and headed off. I ran a little slower than Tuesday, but that's ok. I took the same route, but the way the neighborhood is, I could have varied it up a bit. It's good to know though. Tuesday, I took a small half block walking break before running again. I hit the 2.5 mile mark and stopped since that was my goal for the day. I was a tad bit far from the car at that point, so when I got to the end of the block, I decided to see if I could run back to the car. I did and hence Tuesday's 3.12 mile run.
Well, today I am proud to say I ran the WHOLE time, no walks. Made it up the hill that KILLED on Tuesday and kept going. I was aiming for 3.5 miles, which is actually Sat.'s run goal, but I figured 3 on Tuesday wasn't so bad, I could aim for 3.5. Well, I hit it and then some! I ended up with 4 miles, all under an hour. I know to most people that's really slow, and it is, but I was happy with it. Especially since this means I'm WAY ahead of my running schedule! Woohoo! I think Sat. I'll stick to a 4 mile run and then up the mileage next week. Not too shabby for not having run much in the last several months.
Tomorrow is weigh-in. Wish me luck. I am positive I've lost, just not sure how much.
