after being a *bit* lazy friday, i summoned myself out of bed this morning for my long run. it was about 66 degrees but muggy and humid. i've been blessed with a mini-cool front all week in kentucky with temps in the 60s and not humid. i guess it's about time i get used to the good ol' heavy, sticky air.
about 8-9 miles into the run it started raining. thank god. if it's going to be this humid anyway it may as well rain and keep me cool-ish. unfortunately previous experiences have taught me that my garmin is a diva and does not enjoy the rain. i have no idea what happened but at one point i looked down and there was a compass on my screen. erm ok. i turned it back to the regular time/pace/distance screen and periodically it would beep at me and flash "approaching turn". most of the time this happened at points where there was a street to actually turn on to, but a few times it wanted me to go off-roading.
where's my manual... apparently i have a lot of learning to do.
super slow 12+ miles overall, just couldn't get the legs to turnover today :-/ but i'm little miss positive thinker lately and am just glad i got out for a long run, no matter how slow.
