...Getting in a "fender bender" in the parking lot of your apartment. I use the term fender bender loosely, as that implies that both cars were actually moving. I was not moving. I was stopped. Honking my horn, watching this idiot driving towards me. And boom. Hello America's worst driver, thanks for hitting my car. I hope whatever distracted you and caused your stupidity was worth the nuisance of insurance companies and repair shops that I will now be dealing with this week. SO ANNOYING **#($^&(@&@*
Now that I got that out, let's rewind and focus on the non-buzzkilling portion of my day. I was rested up from yesterday and my legs were antsy all day in anticipation of my run this afternoon. Since it was gloomy, I decided to go with safety first and wear my reflective gear:
|Can't miss me!|
I was really excited to be back outside and leave the treadmill behind me forever.
|A hot pink thumbs up|
Four miles were on the books today and I did my new favorite 4 mile loop. Yes, this is the same loop that I inadvertently almost ended up running on the expressway off-ramp. Don't worry I figured out my mistake. Turns out it wasn't mapmyrun.com's fault -- I'm just a really bad navigator/direction follower. I successfully avoided the expressway this time and officially have a new favorite running route. Four miles flew by and I felt pretty darn good the whole time.
I think I may be on the borderline of officially graduating to the 12 minute mile club?! Garmin tells me my average pace was 11:54 and I felt pretty comfortable to whole time. Definitely comfortably uncomfortable at some points more than others, but overall I felt really good.
Got the same 4 miles on the agenda tomorrow.... along with car insurance and repair shop phone calls. Ya win some, ya lose some I guess!
