I haven't had time to really poke around and see if I can re-program my running days though, so this past Sunday I got up early and went out to run. Of course, it was awesome.
It was lonely though! No other pedestrians on the sidewalk, no trains, no cars, no semi trucks, no noise, nothing.
Tuesdays are my hell days. After work, there's piano lessons. During the Puff's lessons, I made lunches for tomorrow and dinner for tonight (grilled cheese for the Puff and grilled cheese for me--MOTY I tell ya) and changed into my running clothes. After piano, we had to eat our dinner IN THE CAR as we raced out to a "mandatory" parent meeting at the Puff's school. Mandatory.
After the parent meeting, we had to race over to the church for the Puff's Tuesday night church activity. Once she joined her group, I went out for my run.
I wasn't really ready for the voice direction from the app as I was running, or I would have been faster on my FAST intervals.
All of a sudden there was a sharp beep in my ear and the voice said "Starting Interval 20 seconds fast" and I waited for like a GO signal but there wasn't one so I assume I was supposed to have started the fast running once the voice came on. Otherwise, I think I could have run under 10:00/mi each time. Next time for sure.
Seen on my run tonight: feral rabbits. Are they called feral if they're stray like that? I don't know. I saw it bounding and knew it wasn't a cat. At first it ran away from me but then when I stopped to snap the picture it kinda charged at me, so I ran away from IT. I don't know anything about rabbits, except I ate some once.
I wore my Garmin during this run as well because I like to glance at it every once in a while to see what my pace is as I run. But it always bugs me that the Garmin and my phone GPS are never in sync. I don't understand why that happens.
Otherwise, I really loved today's run and the intervals I did. It was fun to change it up a bit and wasn't so hard that I will dread it next time.
Tomorrow is not Tuesday, so it's bound to be a good day. Plus it's a RunKeeper rest day, so that's even better!
