So we didn't really close the bar down last night, but we were one of the last runners to leave, so that is sort of like closing the place down, right?!
This morning I got up and looked at the training schedule. I know so odd for me to check a schedule. Looks like an easy 2 miles for the first week. So I got dressed and put on the new garmin that I won from Mike over at 26.2 Is My Cooldown. The garmin came in the mail this weekend and I was so excited to run with it, then I had a horrible head cold and no running. Ugh... So this morning was the first run with the garmin. I was so excited I headed out the door with no ipod. Oh well it is only a 2 mile run, I don't need music for that. I love the garmin. I am still trying to figure out how to use it, but I can see it may just motivate me to run a bit faster (or a more consistent pace). Thanks Mike!
I finished my 2 miles dripping with sweat. I think I am going to have to find a new place to run, because I don't know how many more laps I can do in the neighborhood. On Friday I am going to do my long run of 4 miles at Burke Lake. It is a nice loop around a lake and the entire loop is 4 miles and most of it is shaded by trees. Fingers crossed that it doesn't rain between now and Friday. If it rains I have to find a new place b/c the rain makes the paths a muddy mess. I think the new running routes will help me to not get so bored with running and training.
