Anyway, I normally run in the evenings -- it's just what I prefer, but yesterday morning it was only 80 degrees and cloudy, so I decided to run before the sun came out and it warmed up to 108. (Yech.)
I downloaded a new app called RunKeeper and I love it! It was free and it keeps track of you with a GPS so you can see your running path. It calculates your calories burned and your average run pace. It ALSO tracks your run pace by the minute, so I can look back on my entire run and see when I was making the best time, etc.
The fastest time I had yesterday was during minute 24, and I ran at a 10:34 min/mile pace. Not too shabby! Most of the rest of my run time was between 11-12 min/mile. The low bars that you see are the times that I was doing the walking intervals.
This was me pre- and post-run. I elected to sit in the floor in front of the fan and cool off while eating my oatmeal for breakfast. Then a little while later I remembered I had bought Muscle Milk for a protein boost after runs. I had never had it before but I thought it was yummy... Stephen wasn't a fan. Which really is good thing for me because it means he won't be stealing any of it from me. Ha!
OH and I just have to say WOO PIG!! I normally don't wear caps when running, but I wanted one in case the sun peeked out from behind the clouds. Stephen's Longhorns cap was the only one I could find with a hole in the back for my ponytail. I texted that pic to my brother (another Longhorns fan) and told him I was scared of going out in public with it...didn't want to get beat up!
