7.5km in 73minutes Todays run went surprisingly well and do I dare say easy. I've been sick with a sore throat all week, not getting enough sleep and just physically drained and given that my last run was Sunday, I was absolutely expecting this run to be another fail. But to my surprise I had a great run, my legs felt great and not once did I think about quitting! Hurray ME! One of my co-worked who is also a runner, had mentioned that once she started adding more running time to the 5min that it became fairly easy. As a NON runner I just simply didn't see how that was possible, how can running for 7 minutes be no different then running for 5 minutes? She was absolutely right, even after running 7 minutes I felt like I could have run 10 minutes with no problem. I was really worried about week 9, running 7 minutes seemed like a lot to do. I'm actually looking forward to my next run... thinking about perhaps running tomorrow since they are calling for 6C (43F). So I'm finally charging my Garmin, just in case I want to take it outside tomorrow... the only problem I can foresee is finding the time. We are having the family over to celebrate Princess 10th Birthday so it will be a busy day.
Which reminds me that I need to name my Garmin. It is a well know fact around the blog world that you MUST name your Garmin. I thought about a clever name or maybe even a funny name... but came up with nothing. Not sure if my Garmin is a boy of girl... does it need to be either or? Maybe it can just be unisex? Can you please help me name my Garmin?
Today my fur child Molly discovered we had a visitor outside my bedroom veranda. She was Very excited with her new found friend.
However my son was worried about the baby racoon and why his mommy would leave him behind. We had to assure him that no harm was going to come to the racoon as his mommy would surely come to get him soon. In the back of my mind I was praying that his family is not planing on making a home in our attic!!
