This was my third running day in a row, although granted two of them were just easy running with the FTC group, but yesterday was my race. Slow & steady does it. The forecast rain didn’t appear until we finished, which was a big relief. Although I forgot that I ran on Saturday, just a tiny bit. It’s fine, still not training for anything, just enjoying the run.
It was a raw morning, so I opted for a progressive run on the treadmill. I thought it would be easier than a steady run. I also wanted to try to run all 4 miles. I don’t know what happened, but at about 2.5 miles I just had to get off and walk a little — and then again in about another half mile. I was feeling kind of light headed. I did finish it up, but man, this run kicked my booty for some reason.
Ran with a variety of our lovely FTC ladies for a couple of miles, then ran with Running Buddy D for another 3. She’s just home from Bucharest, where she ran a 10k! Finally a warm day, which was sort of unfortunately for all the runners running a new local half (including Darlene @ Myfirst5k.
Favorites of the week
Sorry Midwest, but I’m totally glad that Spring blizzard missed us. We had a lovely Spring day yesterday. I ran in a skirt. Mr. Judy grilled some burgers (I made myself a salad) and we were able to eat outside.
Spring is just about ready to pop, finally — I saw my first daffodils this week and the forsythia is almost beginning to bloom.
The stop at the Apple store was a tiny bit frustrating — I had made an appointment, but it seemed they just took people in the order they signed in, or so it seemed — I was right: it was the battery — and that’s mostly why there is a lack of photos this week.
We bought the phone refurbished. I now know that the battery should have been glued in — you could feel it moving around, but we’d read that that wouldn’t be a problem. Apparently it was, as from the moment I got the phone the battery drained really fast. It was my first iphone, and some research said it wasn’t abnormal for that model. Apparently it was, though, because with the new battery it definitely doesn’t drain as fast. I *think* they may have fixed another issued I’d been having too (connecting to wifi).
It wasn’t that expensive and it’s like I have a new phone!
To all those running down goals at Boston, may you have fair weather & good times!
