Test Drive

I got up this afternoon after only sleeping 6 hours.  I only feel like I've rested when I've slept at least 8-10  hours.  That may seem like a lot to you but I know that's what I need.  Even though I was exhausted from two nights of work, I was really excited about my next run.  My new running partner was charged up and ready to go.  I finally got a chance to use my Garmin 405 for the first time!  It was about 90 degrees and very humid so the run itself was a bit rough.  It was hot and hilly and I could tell I was pushing myself to finish.  I ended up running 5 miles. 
Here's my stats:
Overall pace was 8:45 min/mile.
mile 1 8:46
mile 2 8:36
mile 3 8:38
mile 4 8:54
mile 5 8:49
It was wonderful. I feel like the possibilities are endless!  I can't wait for more!

Tonight my husband and I had a little date.  We decided on pizza at a place downtown.  We ordered a deluxe veggie pizza.  It was so yummy!

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

  1. Glad you enjoyed the Garmin test drive!

  2. My weekends are always great! That pizza looks awesome.

  3. Nice run!! Enjoy the new training partner!!

  4. Great pace on your five miler! Don't you just love your Garmin? Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I totally get the sleep thing--I sometimes think I need a good 9 hrs. to feel right. But sounds like the run rocked, so it was worth it, right?

  6. So glad you loved your Garmin.
    Looks like Jerry got him a little hair cut!!??? Maybe?
    The pizza looks YUM...
    Now, to the REALLY important thing
    I love so much that you and Jerry are constantly doing something together. (well, you know what I mean, not constantly, but as much as possible)
    It's so sweet!

  7. oh my, it is definitely worth it! I'm in LOVE!!! :)
    And yes Brianna, Jerry cut his shaggy hair off finallly!

  8. Good job getting out there in the heat. It sure has been awful lately!

    I am the same way about sleep. i NEED at least 8 hours to function. My husband makes fun of the fact that I go to bed so early, but it works for me :)

  9. Great run considering the heat & humidity! And yes... that pizza looks MARVELOUS after a run like that. :) Hope you are having a great weekend! :)
