|All bundled up (and soaking wet) post run.|
After checking the weather, and noting no rain until lunchtime, I promptly got in my car and left my phone at home. I did remember to charge my Garmin (and wear it), but did not pack a towel, brimmed hat, change of shoes or change of clothes. The rain started coming down as we parked at RR, and didn't stop. We ran down to the Willamette River, over the Hawthorne Bridge, back over the Steel Bridge and "home" to RR on 23rd Avenue. I was wiping water out of my eyes for the last 3 miles. I wrung out my running jacket, water dripping everywhere as we changed into the clothes we did bring.
All I had (pictured above) is a warm jacket and my Bondiband ponytail hat. Luckily, a rep from Ragnar was handing out Ragnar t-shirts (and chapstick), so I scored a Ragnar shirt and wore it under my warm jacket on top of my wet running bra. Only a partial fail, I guess.
Plan for this Week
Monday: 4 miles
Wednesday: 4 miles
Saturday: 5 miles
Sunday: weights (and maybe a 4 mile walk)
I'm back at planning my workout weeks. I should be weighing myself on Sundays, too, but I couldn't bring myself to do it yesterday. Maybe I'll dig out my size 6 jeans and try them on weekly instead. Getting back in to them is my main goal, not a silly number on the stupid scale.
