Forgot to blog last night

I was so tired after another day at the pool with the kids that I forgot to blog about my evening run.

It was much better than my first run here. The temperature was considerably cooler and my body felt stronger. So it was a good one.

Garmin recorded 3.25 miles, but I ran closer to 3.75 miles because there were two instances that I didn't have it running when I thought I did. The first was at the start of the run. I looked down about 1/4 mile into it to see what my time was when I realized it wasn't engaged.

The second time was about 1.3 miles into it when this old guy stopped me to crack a joke about buying his dog. Why do people think I can hear them when I am running with my iPod in my ears? I had to stop, fish the iPod out of my pocket, turn it off, take the doohickeys out of my ears, pause Garmin and say "I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you. What did you say?" just to hear this guy say "Do you want to buy a dog?" (his two dogs were bounding down the street off-leash at the time, looking like brainless idiots). *sigh* I responded, "No thanks, I have a dog. Good luck with yours!" Then I forgot to turn Garmin back on until about .20 miles later. Grrrr........

Today we are headed to the Sacramento Zoo to visit my friend Erin and her daughter, Madison. Should be fun! I probably will take tonight off (except for the push up challenge). Bye!

Yesterday's stats:
Distance: 3.25 miles
Time: 35:41
Pace: 10:59 minute/mile

I haaaaate when people try to talk to me. I want to yell, "I am trying to see how fast I can run a mile, don't talk to me!" LOL It totally interrupts your whole rhythym!

I had some mental woman honking at me the other day for about 1/8 of a mile while I was riding my bike. When I stopped, thinking it was some kind of emergency, she asked me where a local school was.

People are stupid.
