I had no goal just go for as long as it felt right.
5.18 miles, 1:14:43, 838 calories burned, 14:26 per mile, Avg HR 166, Max HR 186.
As it was my first run in a few weeks it felt a little rough but better then I expected. It was way easier to spot the ice today so that threw off my gait a little which made the run a wee awkward. It got warmer as I was out there then the ice started to melt a little but that caused it to wet ice and after my heel slipped about 10 times I decided to call it a day.
Today I attempted something different hydration wise. I'm not crazy about water bottles around my waist as I feel like I'm wearing an inner tube, the hydration pack was working well but it did add extra weight.
I can honestly say I'll never use it again. I'm not opposed to the hand held water bottle that part I actually liked. What drove me bonkers was the strap kept coming off the bottle. I might keep my eye out for another one hand bottle but with a more secure strap.
I caught a glimpse of the new Oprah magazine and that her favourite things are featured so I thought I'd share somethings I do like.
I'm loving the Yurbuds but I upgraded to the PRO version as it has controls for the iPhone /iPod.
Nike Lunarglide runners, I normally wear Mizuno for overpronation but I've been reading ChiRunning and trying to focus on a mid foot strike. These have been awesome.
The Bose Quiet Comfort 15 headphones, love love love these. I can listen to music or watch something on my Ipad and it drowns out all the noise from the plane. Heck I once more them not attached to anything when I was flying commercial so I could sleep. They're pricey. I bought a refurbished pair in Las Vegas a few years ago and if these every die I would buy another pair.
Now let me talk about TV.
I'm absolutely loving Arrow, Last Resort, Elementary and Nashville from the new season.
I didn't list 90 plus things like Oprah but thought I'd share.
Tomorrow it's off to Fort McMurray for a two day course. I packed gym clothes to get another run in on Tuesday and a nice walk in tomorrow.
I didn't pack for Orlando today instead I made my pack list as I do have time to pack when I fly home on Wednesday.
I hope all of you enjoyed your Sunday.
