Pre-workout fuel: Whole-wheat toast with apple butter
Workout: Ran 5.03 miles in 43 minutes, 48 seconds; average pace, 8:42.
Rant No. 1: The Garmin said I ran 4.97 miles and good ole MapMyRun said I ran 5.18. Something's not right there.
Of course I knew something wasn't right that last mile or so when my effort wasn't being reflected in the pace on my Garmin. I also knew something wasn't right when what should have been 1.1 miles, give or take, was more like .97.
Dang it, technology! How am I supposed to know whether I'm really super awesome if you don't work? Grrr. At least the Garmin wasn't effed up the whole time, and it's only the last mile where things weren't working right.
Rant No. 2: I thought old ladies were supposed to be good drivers. OK, at least cautious drivers. Not so much. At least once during each of my past two runs, an old lady has totally rolled past a stop sign and nearly hit me as I crossed the street. I try to look meanly at them as they fail to abide by traffic laws but then I feel guilty for looking at old ladies with such disdain.
Rant No. 3: There is no Rant No. 3. I just prefer to have things in threes. I'm weird like that.
