Garmin says it has the utmost confidence in me reaching my goal. Utmost! I remind myself constantly.
With several appointments and work obligations with a holiday thrown in there for good measure, I adjusted the training schedule to make sure I hit all the workouts.
We celebrated Sheppard AFB’s 80th birthday with a 5k/8k – keeping in line with the prescribed run, I chose the 8k. Started out great, then gradually got slower. It was warmer than expected. Even though Garmin said I was unproductive, I felt very good!
As I took off an extra day at work – because why would I have a holiday on Thursday, them return to work on Friday – what better way to kill two hours than by running circles around my favorite lake. Two hours.
Done and done! Too bad it was 10.98 – I could’ve run the extra 0.02 to round up!
Nonetheless, another week has been conquered. Almost there!
