|Two iPhone apps, Two different temperatures...hmmm?|
I bundled up for my run - gloves, headband, sweatshirt. But I refused to wear long spandex - I stuck with my capris. I am holding out for November on the long spandex - we will see how far I really get! Besides being cold this morning, it was dark at 5am. It has been dark in the mornings for a while, but once again I refused to bust out my headlamp. I always wear my reflective vest when its dark but the headlamp to me just signifies cold weather and winter.
So here are a few essentials for a cold and dark morning run:
|Gloves + Garmin|
|Reflective vest and little flashing red light.|
It was a good run this morning - beautifully clear sky with all the stars. Since I have a 5k saturday morning I took it a bit easy -> warm up + 12 min tempo + recovery +4x50m strides + cooldown = a good Thursday run!
|Ready for work - how about that scarf? Its an infinity scarf that I bought last spring - finally getting the chance to wear it - Brian makes fun of me in it, he says it looks funny!|
On another note - I officially changed my name at the social security office today! This is just the first step of so many but at least it is a start. And it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be! I would have changed it yesterday BUT I forgot the marriage certificate at home. Opps!
And another note - I have been feeling really out of whack lately - my muscles feel tight and I have had stomach/digestive pains more often than not in the past three weeks. It really hasn't affected my running, but I wonder if my body is finally coming down from all the commotion and excitement of the wedding. Maybe I am just finally not stressed out any more. Who knows.
Happy Thursday and Happy Running!
