What was I thinking?
Wednesday, August 17, 2011
I ran today. I haven't run since I was in school, and if you look at my SparkPage, you'll be able to determine that that was a LONG time ago ... I've been waking up in the mornings lately thinking that I could run - enjoy the outdoors, not have to deal with moving things around in the den in order to do a video workout, or get to the elliptical. But I didn't. Until this morning. And this is day three of a cold - not a horrible cold, but still, the nose is running, the lungs are not at their peak. So - I ran. My legs felt it a bit at first, but not much. My lungs, however - they did NOT like it. It was 56 degrees this morning, but according to my lungs, it was closer to 32. Not fun. It's also a good thing that I wore my heart monitor. Every time it started beeping at me (I have it set to go off if I go over 168 bpm), I walked. So, I ran only about half the time. But - according to the monitor, I burned about 500 calories. So - I ran today - woohoo!
