...off to the gym I went, and when I arrived I realized I forgot my Garmin.
It's hard to explain how attached to my watch I am. I considered leaving and going home, but I resisted. My plan was to run a treadmill 10K for my "long run".
I boldly stepped up on the treadmill and began my run, naked wrist exposed for the world to see. The first few miles felt strange, I kept checking to make sure my skirt was on (yes I wore my beloved Lulu) because I kept having the weird panicky moments that happen when you forget something.
An hour later I was dripping with sweat and accepted my time scrolling across the treadmill screen. I hopped off the TM and knocked out some leg lifts, push ups, and back exercises. I glanced at my wrist in between sets (like 10 times) to see what my heart rate was...I mean duh...I knew I left it home, I guess it's just habit.
Usually I plug my watch in and upload it while I shower. I had a strange emptiness when I came down the stairs and I realized I couldn't "see" my stats. It's almost like the work out didn't happen if I don't have my visual at the end.
I am totally kidding, but seriously, if my Garmin ever dies I will pay for overnight shipping to have a new one. It's like going to work without your ring on. Randomly during the day I will notice it's missing from my finger and have that panicky second where I wonder what happened to it.
The push ups aggravated my ganglion cysts in my wrists so I have been popping ibuprofen today. I will probably go to the gym tonight right before it closes to run, I guess I will not be lifting today:(
Light week again, just 14 miles of running this week. My naturalist episode changed things up a little anyway.
|Shoe shopping wore me out-I tried on shoes for hours and even left to walk around and think about it...and returned to try on again lol I have quite a time making decisions...I worked up an appetite.|

Do you know that momentary panicky feeling when you forget something you are used to? Ever see a real pay phone? How often do you run naked?
