As promised, I tested my Garmin outside today around the neighborhood. I knew I wasn’t going to do a full out run, so I started fairly fast. To my surprise, I did a mile in 8:58! That is the fastest I have even run a mile, the closest I have ever come to that was 9:20 on the treadmill. The mile I did today was done outside! I was a little doubtful of my ability to finish a 5K in under 30 minutes, but this has renewed my hopes. I’m going to run a 5K outside tomorrow as long as the weather holds out.
Rip 60 in an hour. I’m worried that I’ll get engrossed in the election coverage, so I’ll have to force my butt off the couch. I hope everyone voted tonight! Go Uncle Jack with the spanky ‘stach!
