The clouds parted for a few hours this morning and we were able to go out for a run. My BFF told me about a track nearby that is open to the public so we checked it out. I thought I was going to get my Polar foot pod calibrated...that didn't quite happen. I attached it to my shoe and we started walking. I've been using the Galloway Ultimate 5K App for my iPhone. It had some issues where it froze so I ended up reinstalling it. I opened it up today had to get my music in and turn on the GPS (because I wanted a verification of how the foot pod was working and the Polar won't let you have both the foot pod and the GPS going simultaneously...or at least I couldn't get that to work). While I was messing around with the app, the polar went back to the start screen. I finally got the app going (or so I thought) and ended up just starting the foot pod without going to calibrate...missed that in the list. The app goes and we run and walk going 2.25 miles before I realized that the iPhone was asking if I wanted the GPS to use my location...well, of course I did. Then the app started all over again so the GPS was never tracking our mileage. We ended up going 4 miles doing the run/walk and .5 mile warm up and cool down for a total of 4.5 miles. The run for today was supposed to be 3 miles. I think we're ready for the 5K race next Sunday.
We came home and I did Ab Burner from CLX while my husband took his shower. After I took mine, we walked over to City Diner for brunch. I got an egg white omelet with refried beans, jalapenos, green onions, tomatoes and jack cheese. Very tasty.
I have half left for lunch tomorrow. Yum!
When we got up to leave the restaurant, I noticed top of my right foot was a little sore. Hmmm.... that's where I had the foot pod. I don't think I'll be wearing it again. I did a google search and there have been others with the same problem. Not worth it to me. I'll stick to the GPS.
We went grocery shopping and did some housework. Then it was time for dinner. I had a Smart Dog with salsa, baked lentil chips and hummus. Another yum meal!
The clouds are back and it's getting pretty cool again. It's supposed to rain again tomorrow but clear up by Thursday. I hope so. It's about time Summer came.
Have a good night.
