I BLEW OUT THE COBS!!!!
Monday, January 18, 2010
For the first time since my Reindeer Ramble 5k race December 6 I was able to run OUTSIDE and TOTALLY blow the cobs out!!!!!!!! Oh it felt so good and after all of my PT sessions and ST I felt so strong!!!! Please note all of the exclamation points!!!!! I have needed this so badly and since a lot of snow has melted our streets are clear. FINALLY!!!!
Another item on the agenda that I wanted to address was to use my Garmin Forerunner 305 for the first time!!!! My time is lousy because I was stopping to fidget with it but I don’t care!!!! More exclamation points!!!! I uploaded the run (and stops and starts and walking the dog for 10 minutes) and that worked slicker than snot!!!!! Now I just need to delve into the instruction manual and get down to serious business with my Garmin. My buddy Mike (GSDMIKE) will be demanding split times and I need to figure out how to do that…soon!
Just when I have been feeling the winter blahs my endorphins are just oozing all over the place and I needed that BADLY. Have I mentioned to any of my Spark running friends just how much I love running????!!!!!!!!!
4.52 miles (GPS and not guessing!!!!!!!)
80 minutes (lots of dinking & fidgeting with Garmin and stopping to get dog for walk))
17:45 av pace (see above note LOL)
426 calories burned forever!!!!!
1076 ft. total ascent (whatever that is)
1014 total descent (see ascent note LOL)
I think its pretty safe to say that my times WILL improve when I quit stopping to fidget with Garmin!!!!!!!!!! LOL
