So today I slapped on my new awesome workout clothes that feel awesome and out I went for a “relaxed” run. Yeah, my legs forgot to message me that they were in charge this morning. The minute I pushed off and hit the GO button on my watch I was running at a pace that seemed a little more aggressive than I thought I would be tackling today. I thought about the last 3 days and thought to myself that 11 miles on Sat followed by 75 minutes spinning at home Sunday and a Tabata workout Mon morning followed by a 30 minute spin session Mon night really warrants a SLOW RUN you dumb ass legs! There was no negotiating with those babies because they were hell bound to go. I assessed my breathing and it was fine, legs felt amazingly awesome considering I’ve been beating on them relentlessly. I sat back and went with the flow for the duration. When I got home I looked at my watch and two double takes later I realized my watch said 28:14 (forgot to stop the watch exactly when I stopped). I rounded out and called it 28 even if it was a few seconds over. Think about that! 28 minutes is like a 9:20 mile. What the HELL is going on? I haven’t been able to run that fast in a while. It’s more that I enjoy slower runs because well, I like to breathe for one thing. For another I stop thinking about how tired I am and start enjoying the run and scenery and my mind starts to drift to other things. That is where I like to be and if that’s where I stay forever….that’s totally fine. So now I’m all excited and I go inside blabbing to anyone who will listen that I just did a 28 minute 5K and oh wow blah blah blah….. my friggin watch won’t sync with Garmin so I can see my splits! WTF!!! So I try syncing with my mobile Garmin Connect to no avail. Reconnect with my charger to my laptop…nothing. Disconnect my Garmin mobile app and reload it…NOTHING! Now I have no proof that I was amazing this morning! UUGGHHH Ok, so I don’t have anyone to impress but I WANT TO IMPRESS MYSELF! I want PROOF on my screen! My Garmin connect mobile app only shows 24 seconds recorded even though I have sync’d and my watch recorded my miles. So I guess I’ll just have to be satisfied with knowing I did it even though I can’t prove it. Does proof actually matter??? There’s a question that will keep you up at night.
