I fell asleep way too early last night. I was exhausted. So it wasn't too terrible that the kitties woke me up at 7:30 am this morning. I rolled out of bed and finally got around and went for a run just before 9. It was gorgeous out this morning. I took my mp3 player which miraculously fixed itself. (I have no idea how it did this, but I am very greatful!)
Had a good playlist going. Right now it just plays all of my songs in alphabetical order by title. It actually turned out to be a good mix for taking it easy this morning.
I did around 5.5 miles to Euclid Creek Reservation and back. Forgot how big that hill on Highland is! Took me 7 and a half minutes to get up it!
I ran for 52.29 minutes so averaged just under 10 minute miles. Fine by me as I have to race at 7:35 pace tomorrow for almost 2 hours. YIKES!
I weighed myself before and after running today. In 52 minutes I managed to lose 1.5-2 pounds. NOT GOOD! So I need to hydrate a lot I guess. I even stopped and got a drink from the fountain at Euclid Creek. In retrospect I should have known I was getting dehydrated because I tryed to get water from the fountain 2 minutes from our apartment and looked pretty silly, it was coming out as a trickle so i kept hitting it and trying to shoot the short lived bursts into my mouth, I know I am weird
