(Saturday’s run. Sunday is always my rest day)
I decided to be lazy as ever all morning until I realized that I only had 70 minutes of Billy’s time left for him to babysit Brooke before he had to go to school to take a practice mid-term.
I decided I wanted to do a ‘progression run’ even though I had never done a official one other than on the treadmill (easier to control my pace) before because I usually just like to go out and run and judge my fitness according to my overall pace.
This is what Janae’s first attempt at a progressive run looks like. No time for a cool-down. Let’s just pretend that this is a progressive run based on the fact that my last mile was faster than my first mile.
I used the Garmin 10 and I am liking it more each time I use it. At the end of your run the screen displays a bunch of information about your run that I am always dying to know the second I finish which I really like. I hit 53 miles this last week which is pretty much my sweet spot.
When I got home I had approximately .3 minutes for my personal photographer to take pictures of my awesome jacket before he left so there was no time to figure out what the heck was going on with my hair and wet face and I couldn’t think of any cool poses. I sweat a lot.
I finally had a cold enough morning to try out my Brooks Nightlife III jacket. It was about 40 degrees when I left on my run and my jacket was PERFECT. My legs actually got really cold because I decided to wear the world’s shortest shorts but back to the jacket, it saved me from freezing to death.
I LOVE how lightweight this jacket is. It did the job that I needed it to do without feeling bulky and heavy. It is also very moveable…does that make sense? Basically I just mean that it is really easy to move in this jacket, it doesn’t feel restrictive at all. I really loved the moisture-proof phone pocket on the inside of the jacket. Since I always take my phone with me on my runs this is perfect. The jacket also makes you very visible with the drop-down reflective flaps and reflective front zip.
Once again, I love thumb holes and this jacket has them.
Definitely a winner. If you can’t tell, I really like running clothes. I could talk about them all day. Real people clothes are lame.
Since I can’t go an entire post without talking about food, Billy made us rockin’ bfast burritos for lunch. I think I could live off of these.
How often do you take your cell phone with you when you go on a run?
Do you ever do progressive runs?
Anyone else having a rest day today?
What was your lunch?
