Hi, my name is Jena, and I’m addicted to my Garmin.
When I headed out for my run today I turned my Garmin on, then it made this awful I’m almost dead beeping at me! Quick decision, run on the treadmill or run with just a stop watch. Risky business. I hate running w/o my Garmin. I’m clearly super dependent upon it. I mean, how will I know my pace, or how far I’ve gone? ugh.
Since I am running a 10k this weekend I decided to take my run outdoors to practice running outside. My runs are about 50/50, running on the ‘mill, or running outside. So I mapped out a course on mapmyrun.com, but my memory failed me when I actually go outside. I just went down all the streets in my neighborhood to make sure I got enough distance. I ‘thought’ it was just a little over 3mi, which was my scheduled run for today.
When I got to my house and saw my time was 37 minutes I was disappointed. I was thinking taking that week off last week wasn’t a great decision and there is no way I’ll PR this weekend @ the 10k. I mapped my route…4 miles?! Phew! I felt much better!
4mi, 37:24, 9:24pace.
My legs felt a little tight and tired. No knee pain for the most part, a little twinge here and there but nothing to be concerned with.
I am going to my first physical therapy appointment today.. I think. Hmm, now that I think about it they didn’t call & leave a message reminding me I have an appt. Maybe I should call them. I really do not want to go to physical therapy, I’m dreading it. ughh.
