My wife and I took my mom’s dog for a walk in a hedge maze. I learned two things: (1) my Garmin isn’t super accurate in a maze and (2) you shouldn’t let the dog navigate.
I can’t use my new shoes because they are a cat bed now.
I got my official 1-mile time. It was 5:19.9 (I was pretty close on the manual timing).
I wish there were more one-mile races around here because I know I could have run this a few seconds faster. I just misjudged my pace and ran too slow. When I’ve run fast miles before I was gasping for breath, couldn’t speak and felt like my chest was going to explode. This time I was just a bit out of breath.
I primarily write business copy. Send me a question off anon if you’re still interested. I’ll tell you all about it.
I’m a freelance writer, so I have a very flexible schedule. And right now my workload is pretty low, which means more running and less moneying.
I’ve been taking caffeine pills before some of my workouts to see how that affects my performance. I took some before tonight’s 1-mile race just to test them in my stomach at a fast pace (the real benefits come in longer runs). The good news is that the caffeine felt fine in my stomach. The bad news is that I’m going to be awake all night.
