So tonight I decided to take my running act outside. It was awesome! A great night to run, the temperature was perfect-the kind where you are sweating but you can’t feel it due to the crisp air. Anyway, I discovered a few things:
1. Running outside is SOOOOO much harder than on the treadmill! Navagating the somewhat crowded and uneven city sidewalks and lead to aches and pains in muscles I didn’t know I had!
2. I want need a Garmin or SOMETHING to track my distance, speed and time. OY. I THINK I did about 3.5 miles in about 40 mins???? Dunno. Counted city blocks. Did 65. Made a loop to Rittenhouse, ran around that 5 times, then looped it back home. I know, boring. SEE! IF I HAD A GARMIN, I could just see my stats and quit re-living my run in my head to try to figure those stats out. Getting one. Done and done.
3. I HATE GINKOS! Unfortch my i-pod ran out of batteries (luckily I was already heading back home). So I was stucking listening to the squish-smoosh of the stinkin’ (literally) ginko balls. EW. Yuck. Glad we settled that.
Sooooo tired. Nighty!
