My watch died at the first half mile. I was so damn pissed at myself for not charging it. Like "the miles don't count" "I won't reach my monthly goal." Etc all ran through my head. Took about 30 seconds before I said "omg shut up you used to run with a fricken cd player in your hand. Your first ever nine miles you ran without anything but just looked at the kitchen clock, ran, and came back to see how long it took. Shut up and run." Lol so I did. It was part of my normal routes so I knew where the mile marks were. With the way the world is we tend to get lost in technology. Just because I didn't do 7 on my watch does that mean I didn't do 7 miles? F*** no! Do I know my pace? Well by calculating the time I started and the time I stopped I would say around a 9:50 pace. No music, no watch, just my feet hitting the road and breathing. My mind was so clear. I felt so good. Best run I have had in a long time. A blessing in disguise. I actually follow and ultra runner who ran for the USA 24 hr team that does not log her miles or even use a watch like a garmin. I definitely need to just obsessing about my mileage because my endurance is there. I'll make that 50 miler happen. If my watch dies...who cares. It doesn't make me who I am. I will run, walk, crawl finish!!!
On another note...I got to use my new fitsplint. Omg prego chicks...check them out! It was so nice not to have the back pain, have to pee, and the ligament pain! Even if you don't run totally get one!
So 7 miles, 1 hr cardio, 20 min weights. Boom!
