Day 537 - wow! got hit with a little of everything today

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Ugh - ANOTHER rainy day here in Omaha. It's been drizzly and miserable but I needed to get out and run 30 minutes to stay on schedule with my 10k training so I ran some errands and stopped at the trail where I'm running my 10k on Saturday.

I wanted to find which area we are meeting at to start the 10k and figured I could run in drizzle since it was about 45 degrees and I had a headband, two thin jackets (one waterproof, thanks be to God) and my gloves. Little did I know that by the time I was half done I'd get heavy rain, little hail and lightening and thunder!! How stupid did I feel to be out there running with all that going on!

I made it back to my van and headed home, stopping by the grocery store to get my son's prescription filled and pick up some groceries. I looked like a drowned rat but felt energized at least. Kind of embarrassing to be seen in public looking like that but . . . OH WELL!!

Not sure what's going on with my BodyMedia Fit, though, because it registered my 40 minutes of running/walking as 13 minutes of exercise. Say what! It's also behind quite a bit on my number of steps taken today so I'm thinking of moving the band to my calf permanently. It seems to register better there for me than on my arm.

    Hope you figure out what's going on with your BodyMedia Fit. I agree it could be that the battery is low. Hopefully you didn't get it wet! Have a great Thursday!

    emoticon job and way to hang in there despite our weather! I love going to the grocery store when I'm "not made up." I usually have to go after leaving the barn so not only do I look a mess, but I smell like horses! Keep at it and good luck with your 10K! I may be asking some advice later! emoticon
