How Goes It
I ran in 40-something degree weather for the first time! (Actually it was 49°F, but I still consider 49 to be in the “40s”) It was also rainy – ewww. Seriously, if it wasn’t for the fact that I am leaving for vacation on Thursday, I would have skipped it.
I used my nifty new heart monitor today – nevermind that it took me 20 minute to figure out that it goes under my “girls,” not above them. I synched it easily to my Garmin and went out the door to see what would happen.
It of course showed that I am running completely out of my fat-burning zone and into anaerobic levels. Not good. My reports after also showed that I am at 100% when I go up a hill – duh. Lesson: SLOW THE F DOWN!
The upside is that I’m learning to pace myself in the beginning of the run, instead of the opposite.
I’m also happy to avoid a near-death incident with a garbage truck. I’m not sure how he didn’t see me when he’s staring right at me in my super bright turquoise vest, but whatev’s – I’m alive!
