Comments: On my way to work in the morning the radio stationed mentioned that it will be another hot day. So I had the hubby tell my temporary boss (my actual boss is on vacation) that I will be late to work.
I had left my regular Garmin (Forerunner 205) at home so I used my backup (Forerunner 201) instead. What a difference in tracking between the both. The 201 was not able to track me 1/4 of the time. The 205 usually never looses me once it finds me. In the long run it didn’t matter, because all I needed was something to track my overall time. I already had the distance measured.
The run was good. This was my fastest 4 miler ever at work. 🙂 The thing is though, I tell myself to have a comfortable, slow run, just to enjoy what I am doing, but then I always start chasing my previous time. No, I don’t look at my watch during the run, but internally I want to run faster than the last time. I really need to work on that!
