Today I got crazy and switched things up for my second day of training (C25K W1D2). Instead of running with Daisy in the morning when it was 45 degrees, I took her to doggie daycare and ran in the afternoon when it was 75 degrees. No need for my fleece today that’s for sure. I figure I’d better get used to running in warmer weather or I’m going to be screwed come summer.
When I was in high school, my mom laid down the law after I came home beet red and shaky after a run one especially wretched Virginia morning (95% humidity 85 degrees at 8:00 am). After that I had to get up at 6:00 am or I wasn’t going. But I digress.
The other reason I put off the run until this afternoon was so I could procure a new watch with a chronometer and some sportier earbuds for my ipod so I could listen to something other than the counting inside my head. Much better. Blue Incantation with Jerry Garcia and Sanjay Mishra kept me moving along at a pretty good pace.
Now I’m off to make something hopefully gourmet(ish) out of the salmon, asparagus, mushrooms and quinoa I picked up at Ellwood Thompson’s on the way home. Wish me luck. I’ll let you know if I come up with anything spectacular.
