The weather is burning me up but that didn’t stop me from getting in a short run this morning. Shutting off my alarm and falling back asleep killed my track plan but fortunately a co-worker called my cell at 6:45 and salvaged the morning – phew!
I managed to run a little under 2 miles at a 9:35 pace and that felt like the perfect thing to do. I used my muscles a bit, got a little speed on and most important of all – I FELT GOOD!
It’s been a while since I’ve said that.
Saturday I do my 9 miles and then I just shamble around a bit waiting to do the marathon. Ye-Haw!
In other news – if you want to listen to books while running do NOT buy an iPod shuffle. It isn’t good at linear stuff and it often loses my place and reverts to where I had started last time. You can’t flip through the chapters – you just have to hold you thumb on the fast forward. I spent most of my almost 2 miles today fast forwarding – and then the battery died. Arrrggghhhhh!!
As soon as I think of a good excuse I’m getting a nano.
