This morning* I decided to go for a run even though I ran yesterday and plan to run tomorrow. It was the usual Sunday morning dilemma when I've already run Saturday. What am I going to do for exercise Sunday when I've run on Saturday? The Y doesn't open till noon, too late. Besides, I only did 7 miles on Saturday, the weekend can certainly absorb more. I decided to make it a short run, 5 or 6 miles, maybe 7, certainly no more than 8.
But when I pulled out Garmin, it had no power! Can't imagine how that happened. But I had no choice but to run naked--that is, without Garmin. Nothing to tell me my pace, distance, etc.
I did rely on the mileage signs around Jennings Park to figure how far I had gone. By complicated use of math (and my knowledge of the area), I am pretty sure I ended up with a total of 8 miles. That made sense because my running time was about 80 minutes. Although I didn't think I was quite that slow....
Tomorrow morning will be the last run of the summer! Also the one-year anniversary of last year's Maine Coast Half Marathon. That was a fun race, wish I could go back!
*Actually I decided in advance last night.
