Something was just off today. I woke up early enough to go for at least a 3-5 mile run this morning. I hopped onto my new treadmill (new to me, but used) and began my run. That's when everything bad began. The treadmill's belt seems to be too loose. I decided to still give it a try though since it was dark out when I began my run.
Within the first .50 miles of my run though, the GPS kept shutting off. Not once, not twice, but four different times! VERY IRRITATING!!! I know I could run without my GPS but I am really trying to log my miles right now and I prefer to use that tool to help me out. I decided it was time to give up for the morning and try again after work.
Once I was off work, I decided to give the treadmill another shot. Bad news, same thing kept happening. I hung in there for 1.15 miles but the loose track and bad GPS was so frustrating that I took myself outside and went for a quick lap around the neighborhood.
I'm glad I did! I paced my fastest mile of the year to date 7'55"/mile. WOOHOO! I think all that anger was helpful in today's run. I only accomplished 1 more mile though because it was starting to rain. Like I said, today just was not the best running day for me. I hope it went better for everyone else!
