Hubby dropped me off at Track Shack while he ran errands, and I found a couple of new items for *the girls* (Sorry, Morgan... some of us still require lots of support!)
and a very cool pair of B.O.A. bright orange running shorts.... awesome!!! (Oh, and yes, these are real running shorts, so I decided to try out you guys' advice - you know what I'm talking about!) Not too bad.... Kinda nice, actually! :)
A huge thank you to Besty, over at Track Shack. She'll tell you she knows her sports bras, and she ain't kiddin'!
So, by late afternoon, I was finally ready to run. Since it was still oppressively hot/humid outside (mid-day... missed early morning run due to late Fri night blog writing/reading), I jumped on the treadmill, or as 5 Miles 2 Empty calls it, the dreadmill. Love that!
This was a slow return, so after a 5-min walking warm-up, I plugged in 35 minutes, and away I went. I was so excited with new gear & to be back, I started jamming to tunes right away, and started out a bit enthusiastically... No worries, though. Maintained a slow, but respectable 12:30 - 14:00 pace - to ease back in. 35 minutes later and 2.6 miles later, I was finito. Not bad for a brief re-entry!
Fran Wants to Be Healthy, thanks for checking in on me yesterday first-thing... you sent a message before I even got out the door. Thanks for the encouragement! I always wonder what time it is where you are.... :)
CAUTION: Redhead Running, thanks for offering to check ditches! As you can see, I'm still kickin' and will be heading outdoors for this week's runs.
- Good advice (and virtual hugs) from fellow runners :)
- Feeling better
- New sports gear and Betsy's help at Track Shack (awesome!)
