On Saturday, Chris and I went to a new trail that I found online. It’s the Auburndale Teco Trail, off of Berkley road. It was a pretty nice trail. There was quite a lot of shade for the first 1.5 miles, then after that the shade tapers off and it was just hot. They have trail markers etched into the trail- which sucks if you aren’t looking for them. I didn’t notice them until I got to 1 mile, then i saw the 1.5 mile …. good to know, I hate carrying that bulky Garmin. Can’t wait to hopefully get a Garmin Forerunner 305 for my b-day.
I ran a total of 3.6 miles on Saturday, which is my longest run yet. Not really impressive when I think of all the other girls I know that are running in the double digit runs… but i’ll get there. I didn’t run today (Monday), going to run tomorrow. This getting dark by 6 thing really threw me for a loop. I have to figure out where I am going to run, i need a place with street lights- uhm yah, no where in D-port has street lights! I have thought about wearing my fishing headlight, but that thing drives me bonkers when I fish, I can’t imagine running w/ it on my head. Hm.
I am going to register for my second 5k tomorrow! The Bartow Turkey Chase. I’m excited. I decided that I can only do one 5k a month for budgeting reasons. This one is only $18, the first one I did I think was $25. Crap! I just looked at the 5k I was going to do in DEC and that joker is $35..hmm I think i’ll find another one. It was the NTC (national training center) 5k… I think i’ll find a holiday one or something. Maybe even register for my first 10k… 6.2 miles. I think I should be ready for that by the end of December!
Good night- I have to get back to my homework now. Boo
