So, even though I wasn't really in the mood to sweat it all out, I got ready anyway. Just as I was dragging myself out the back door, I heard a knock at the front door. My heart jumped for joy! I knew what it had to be and I was right!!
My Garmin Forerunner 405 is here! (Please excuse the terrible photos!)
I no longer had to drag myself anywhere...I was bouncing all over the place. I ripped open the package and took a good look at my new running partner. The watch is a little big on my wrist but I don't mind one bit! It takes about 3 hours to charge so I haven't gotten a chance to play with it or run with it yet. But, I will tell you all about it when I do! Yay, the possibilities seem endless!
Anyway, I headed out to the gym for some hill repeats. It was around 95 degrees and threatening to storm so I decided the treadmill would be good today. I soon felt absolutely exhausted. My legs were sluggish and I was fighting with the part of my mind that was telling me to just stay on a flat course. I alternated every other half mile of hills. I ran a total of 4.5 miles at a little slower pace than usual. I ended up doing what I set out to do and I'm very glad! Tomorrow will be a much needed off day. Then I will get to run with my new running partner!
