Yesterday was “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.” It would have been easy to blow off my six mile run and just kick back in the cafeteria with YaYa during the lunch break. That was not what happened.
Upon the first of three sessions letting out, YaYa and I quickly returned to my office to change our clothes. We grabbed YaYa’s bike, helmet and my running gear. We headed outside for my run.
Unfortunately, garminia was unhappy with being rushed. She refused to locate the satellites and, therefore, never reported a pace. Even though I was pretty certain that I was running too fast, I did not slow. I was not confident that YaYa would have enough time to eat a good lunch; he’s a slow eater. My final calculations confirmed that I did run way over pace. But YaYa did have plenty of time to eat.
Today was a different story. With a short, 4 mile run, I didn’t manage to get it done. I had left my workout bag here at work, had packed up clean running clothes last night, and had put my running shoes in the van this morning. The only issue was that my bag of clean running clothes are still at home. *sigh* At least it is Friday.
I hate it when the Garmin doesn’t catch before I run. It really bugs me. I’m probably too anal over it.
Bummer about the clothes. Some days are just like that.
YaYa really truly got to experience a real “work day” for you with even getting a lunch time run in. How cute! I had a run day this week where I got to the gym and realized I forgot my running shoes so I too missed a run.
