We’ve had so much rain this summer, I didn’t realize how dry this week actually was until my zucchini started to die. And zucchini are pretty hardy! I was so focused on watering our new plants that I just didn’t even notice that the garden needed watering, too.
Had a good run, despite struggling with the interval timer on my iPod & being very slow – some of that was due to the timer; ultimately it was negative splits.
Some strength training, a little recovery yoga; ultimately an uneventful day. Which I needed after last week!
Hill repeats & yup, another rain threat. We’re still dry (except for the sweat). 10 this week.
A nice relaxing swim. The pool will be close for 3 weeks in a month. Why can’t they do maintenance in the winter? And kettlebells.
I met up with My First 5k & More again. Yup, again! It was really a lovely evening to run. She slowed down a little to stay with me for part of the run, which helped me reach my tempo pace.
I accomplished a lot, but I also got some much needed rest. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind this week. Just walked the dogs, chores around the house, a quickie kettlebell sesh.
A cut back week so only 5 miles. I actually took the dogs for a short walk before I left since we weren’t meeting until 7 am and the day was supposed to heat up rapidly and rain was in the forecast.
Had another good run and actually was under 13 mm, which is good for me. I have to keep an eye on it and make sure I don’t push too hard on my long runs; it’s gotten me into trouble before.
Then home, another short dog walk, and quickie shower & I was supposed to meet up with my sister-in-law & niece in Saratoga, only they were having some issues so I waited . . . and waited . . . and waited . . . and we ended up meeting for a very late lunch. Which was my dinner.
Another lazy Sunday. Well, if walking the dogs & doing grocery shopping before 10 am is lazy. The only thing I hate more than food shopping on the weekends is having to shop when it’s crazy busy.
And then finally at some point during the day (or night), my new Garmin Vivoactive was delivered. I kept checking our doorstep, listening, then finally a 9 pm I actually went out to the mailbox where it was waiting who knows how long?
Then I spent way too much time trying to set it up, mainly because I had to keep deleting stuff off my phone to get the GarminConnect App on & I don’t even have that much stuff on my phone! And you can’t move the app to an SD card. Which means I have more work to do on my phone. So I ended up going to bed way to late, but I did get it set up finally.
I’m linking up with Tara at Runningnreading.com for her Weekend Update.
Do you run with a GPS watch? Which one? How do you feel about it?
