'Tis the season to get bugs in the eyes. I went for a run yesterday around 4:30, and it was cloudy so I didn't wear my sunglasses.
That was a mistake. They should also be called "anti-bug glasses" because if I'd worn them, perhaps the 5 bugs that got into my eyes (yes, I'm not kidding, I stopped at least 5 times to pull a bug out of one of my eyes) would have ricocheted off my lenses instead of swimming in my eye juices.
It was a good run otherwise. 3.25 miles in 34:34, avg pace 10:38. My short runs have become run fast/walk a bit to recover runs, and I suppose that's okay. I'd like to say I run the whole time, but I really really like running faster--Garmin is telling me I'm running between 8:30's and 9:30's on a regular basis--but I can't keep it up for more than a few tenths of a mile at a time. Then I'll walk a minute or so to catch my breath, and pick it back up again.
Wash, rinse, repeat, until I'm all done.
Even though I am walking quite a bit, I do like that I'm getting some high intensity interval training in. I'm hoping it will help me lose some more poundage.
I was successful in not eating a bunch of crap last night before bed or when I woke up in the middle of the night, and the scale was down a bit today. Now I've just got to keep it up and build some consistency back into my routine, and things will be all good on the food front.
Tonight I'm planning another run--the distance will depend on when I get out of work. Anything is better than nothing. Tomorrow I'm going to do another Group Power weights class. I'm very much looking forward to that.
