Yesterday I decided that it was time to run again. I hadn’t ran since the half and I was starting to feel like a lazy slug! My plan was to run 3.1 miles after work. So, I had a midafternoon snack of popcorn (ha) and then after work, I changed into my gear. It was a beautiful day – 57 degrees and sunny. I went outside and turned on my Garmin and immediately it beeped – low battery. Awesome.
I took off and decided that I was going to run the whole distance and try to do so without looking at my watch. At mile 1, it beeped. 11:01 – I was very, very happy with that! It had been a while since I ran a mile straight, because while training I was doing the galloway 4:1 method. Right after that mile beep, the Garmin beeped again. Dead. Not awesome. Immediately I thought, “Okay, fine. I’ve done a mile, that’s a start and good enough for today.”
Yep, I stopped after a mile. The loop I was doing went around my house, so I wasn’t far from home at all. So, I headed back home and changed back into normal clothes for dinner. I was on a time crunch anyways and so it kind of just worked out.
So, a mile at 11:01. I’ll take it, for now. This weekend is a different story. 🙂 The Garmin WILL be charged and ready!
