After my run/ after I changed.
My colors especially clashed today.
I forgot my Garmin, so timed my intervals with my trusty, old-fashioned stopwatch with a broken band that I have to hold in my hand:
It was mid-70s, which felt pretty cool before I started because I’m so used to it being warmer. It was still crazy humid because it’s been raining on an off for the past 20 hours or so, but the lower temps & overcast sky definitely helped. My allergies are much, much better, though there were a couple times I wished I had a tissue.
First, I jogged 1.55 untimed, which wouldn’t have been as long as the recommended 20 minutes, but since the weather was iffy, I didn’t want to stretch it out any more.
Not having my Garmin to pace myself isn’t too hard where I run because it’s marked every 1/10 of a mile. I just divided my target time (3:50) by 5 to get 46 seconds/ tenth. Since I knew I always run my intervals a bit too fast, I ran the first one at a pretty easy (for such a short distance) pace. That was the only one close to my target. I was worried about going too slow, so I pushed a bit harder for each of the 3 remaining intervals. I’m pretty impressed with myself that they were all within 10 sec. of each other. I walked 2/10 between each interval for recovery.
Then I jogged some more and walked back to my car to get my clothes to change.
I have some other errands to run (besides just getting on Tumblr to post my run), so I brought clothes for changing. I also brought baby wipes & a towel. The head wrap thing I’m wearing is awesome for times like this because my hair is oily in the mornings anyway. My mother-in-law brought it back from Peru the first time she went to visit my sister-in-law and her family. I have a blue one, too.
