At a glance it looks like an average run.
It doesn't tell you... I hit the snooze button and started later than I hoped.
It doesn't tell you... I skipped my warm up. I started running a few steps after my driveway, which I never do! I always walk, and do a little dynamic warm up.
It doesn't tell you... I was determined to get at least 5 miles in this a.m.
It doesn't tell you... my head felt a little foggy when I started running because I had a margarita last night. Bless you Nuun, you made me feel better.
It doesn't tell you... I was sad to feel the highly humid conditions this a.m. but, hey, summer had to show up sometime...
It doesn't tell you... my Garmin pulls weather info, but it is almost always wrong! I track on my local app - it was 63 degrees, dew point 61 and 90% humid.
It doesn't tell you... I really had to ease up the first few miles to ensure I could get my mileage goal.
It doesn't tell you... I ran through three sprinklers. My first two were just pass-throughs and the dampness felt good on my arms and back. The last one I paused my watch for about 30 seconds, and filled my handheld with a little more water, and made sure to let the spray hit my face.
It doesn't tell you... I felt so good after my short pause, I just wanted to keep running.
It doesn't tell you... I saw pretty pink skies, but only for a few seconds.
It doesn't tell you... that my feet, which stay in the 2 to 3 range on the pain scale, felt better than usual today.
It doesn't tell you... I had my up and downs on the run, but overall it felt like a great morning run.
It doesn't tell you... I made it to my desk at 7:02 with my hair in a damp pony tail, but I was completely content because I spent those early morning hours exactly as I wanted to!
Sometimes the average pace just doesn't tell the story...
When was the last time you looked at your numbers and felt like it just didn't convey the story?
I hope you are having a great week!
