Week 2, Day 1: 45 minutes easy run
The nights are quickly creeping up as I often venture out about the same time, but todays run I ended up running home in the dark. I made sure to charge my Garmin to ensure I wouldn’t have a repeat of last week’s dead battery. Even though it was working, I still had no idea how long I had been running because I didn’t know how to turn the backlight on to read my watch! It was too dark to read it, and I wasn’t going to chance pushing random buttons and mess up my time. It was another successful guessing game because I finished back at my driveway at 45:17! My pace was 12:51.
Again, I focused on my form and consistency in pace. I ventured out with the goal of enjoying the run despite having eaten a LARGE, late dinner. I went slow and steady and didn’t have any issues. It was a beautiful summer evening and I know that they will soon come to an end. Until they do, I will enjoy them.
