Week 3, Day 1 of my 5k program. It's perfect running weather so I decided to take it outside instead of the gym. The benefit for me was not to get hung up on the numbers in front of me. The downside is that I have no idea how far I ran but I figured it couldn't have been less than 2 miles as I was at that level already.
And the bonus benefit? Here's what happened: my cat likes to go outside and lose her collar. It's a break-away collar and sure, I'd rather replace the collar than have her strangle herself if she gets stuck somewhere, but this was the third time!
The first time some neighbours found it sitting in their driveway. They called us, all upset because they thought she might have been eaten by a koyote or a raccoon. The second time, we never found it. So off to the pet store for another one, plus name tag - ka-ching!
Last night she came home late again, sans collar. When I did my run, I kept a look-out for it - not hard as it's red, with rhinestones. (Yeah, I know
Anyway, on the last 2 minutes of running, I saw it, once again sitting on somebody's driveway. Woohoo! Kitty 1; Humans 2!
