ahhhh, There's hope for me yet. At least with the running. I completed a 4 miler today which is the longest I've run outside in a long long time. It's nice to finally have done that.
I also figured out the autolap feature on the Garmin!!! Essentially it clicks in at whatever distance you choose and resets, all the while keeping time for the entire run.
I set it for a mile and at eash mile it bleeped at me so i knew exactly where I was. I actually found this quite helpful.
My OVERALL pace was 12.10 mile. I actually ran all my miles, except the last one faster than that however. I ran 2 miles and then walked for 2 minutes, i then ran the third and walked for about 0.02 miles and started to jog again. i was getting pretty tired at this point, then I jogged up a small hill and was momentarily stopped by a traffic light. It was sort of hard to get across the street. For 3 mi: I was at 34 min. Slow, but a definite improvement. I wish there was some way on the garmin to Plot Distance vs time, rather than time as a function of or distance as a function of…..I imagine someone knows how, but it isn't readily obvious to me. the fourth mile was about a 13 min mile. I did a bit of walking, and it "messed up" my pace…ah well.
At that point I was at 3.6 mi and feeling alright I knew I had to finish 4 no matter what.
Julio recently said to me that "Sometimes you have to keep going even though you think you are going to die and of course you don't die" Well, i didn't feel close to death so I knew there wasn't an option to stop.
It's nice to see some improvement, even if I am still slower than I used to be. Looking forward to the Race for the Cure next weekend.
After running, I rowed for 10 mins (One mile) on the ERG rower, and stretched and did some crunches, then hopped on the ellipitical for about 5 min more to do a 0.5 mk ellipitical event, so I feel like I had a decent workout today.
Now, I think it may be time for my traditional nap.
No word on the Job. Traveling may become a better option, as I know they need me. we'll see.
Ahhhh Money……jobs…..running……hmmmmm. ANy Garmin advice??
