Which is becoming a tiring mantra on my behalf. Suffice it to say that I ran ONE TIME this week...and that would be this morning. 4 miles on Dread - 40 minutes. I figured if I was going to run only one time, I'd better run hard...actually cranked it up to the level 8 speed interval, which goes from 5.6 - 7 mph (10:30 to about an 8:30 mile) for 35 minutes.
I'm waiting to hear from the herd if anyone is interested in joining me in a long run (10-12) miles tomorrow morning. If not, I think I'll run twice around Coronado. That'd be about 12 miles.
That's my running report for the week. I will have more to report after tomorrow's long run.
So, here are three other random Saturday afternoon rants and whines:
- Why do I waste my money on running gadgets that do not work? Do any of you have a Nike+ sensor? I bought one a few weeks back and it sucks. I think I need to return it because after working for about ONE WEEK, my Nano now CANNOT locate the sensor. I'm starting to really dislike the pleasant female voice that suggests that I walk around to locate the sen-sor. I've been to both the Nike+ and Apple websites and it seems like lots of people have this problem. GAH! I haaaaaaate returning things.
- Why am I the only person in my house who feels temperature? This afternoon, after navigating the crowds at Costco, I come home to find Turbo and Walter, planted in front of the tube watching college f-ball...no problem with that, but the thermostat says the house is 85º AND the air-conditioner is blowing, meaning that it is probably hotter than 85º in most parts of the house. AND neither one of them seem to notice that the house if just eff-ing HOT... GAAAHHH!!!!
- Why (speaking of Costco) do I manage to lose my receipt about 1/2 the time between the cashier and the door-guy who has to check my receipt? GAAAHHHHH!!!!
