It was a little chilly this evening, so I wore long sleeves and my capri length running pants for the first time. The pants were all right at first, but I think they were a little too big around the waist because they started kind of sliding down a little bit during the run. The long sleeved shirt was great at first, but it just got way too warm by the end! Maybe I can keep running in my summer wardrobe for a bit longer…
I was doing pretty well on time, but I walked for a couple of blocks in the middle of mile 3 again. I have to stop doing that! It’s messing up my pace! I just hate running up that hill in mile 3, so I run half of it, then walk the rest of the way. I have to just push it a little harder and run up the whole thing like I used to.
There were a TON of little gnats out tonight! I was covered in them! It’s a good thing I wear a hat while running to (somewhat) protect my eyes. I still had a bunch of them fly in my face, though. I feel bad because, at this point, it’s like I’m killing at least 20 or 30 little bugs every time I go running! It’s pretty sad.
I also saw a dead squirrel lying in the grass in someone’s yard. I slowed down and went back and started talking to it a little to get it to move or something, but it was totally still. It didn’t look like it had been hit by a car or anything, so I guess it fell out of a tree or died of natural causes. Again, pretty sad…
I walked a little in mile 4 when I went home to drink some water. Then I resumed running until I finished mile 6. Overall, it was a good distance run, but my time was definitely lacking.
