Time:29 minutes, 20 seconds Distance:About 2 3/4 miles
I did it! I ran for 29 minutes and 30 seconds actually. Again the mapping out of my route did not go that well (due to some weather elements) and I acutally arrived back at my gate with 30 seconds to go. You know what? Thats not that bad! Despite it being 50 degrees at my house, about 1 mile away (at the lake) its about 30 and windy - and the moron I am ran right into it. After I found myself running head into the wind and tears streaming down my face, I altered my planned running route a bit and ended up having to make a silly circle around the blocks as I approached home or I would have never made 30 minutes. Once again, lessons learned!
- Ran outside - didnt die
- After running, completed a stretching video from momentum.com for marathon trainers
- Found a way to map my runs (thanks to Bridgette!) at Favorite Run
- My Underarmor long sleeve shirt rides up when I run :(
- During the spring, while Chicago weather is at its maximum unpredictability, might want to plan routes away from the lake!
Unfortunately, since I screwed around all day trying to find more excuses not to run outside, I now have to head to campus to get some work done. By the time I shower, eat and get there - its gonna be about 3pm. Since I refuse to be on campus past 5, I only have 2 hours to work and I will have to go back again another day to finish up. Someday I swear, I will get my act together.
