I went out for another training day today…but not at my usual time.
This morning I had a job interview and originally planned on not jogging today. This decision was ‘set in stone’ when it became 91 degrees at 9:00am this morning (my usual jog time) as we were supposed to reach around 103 today which usually leads to a late night of free sauna services.
At around 7:30pm I stepped outside to feed my incredibly loving stray outdoor cat whom I have yet to name (and if I get a job/move will be coming with me).
While feeding her, I noticed it wasn’t really as warm as I thought it would be and there was a nice breeze coming through. So I decided to hurry myself upstairs and change into a pair of shorts, sports bra, sports bra, sports bra, workout tee and running shoes to scoot on out the door. Since it was getting late outside I thought it would be best to stick to the neighborhood instead of my usual route.
Walk out door-Check
Turn on iPod-Check
Turn on C25k app-Check
Turn on Nike+ running app- Check
…all was great. I was at about 5 out of 6 jogs into the training routing (with about 15 minute remaining in the workout).
I was feeling good
…all was well…
Then I got a phone call and THE FREAKING APP STOPPED AND FAILED!!
I picked up my phone to check my time and speed and had a white screen with a ” low GPS signal” message and a “Force close” message while it was still ‘running’. I thought that maybe…just maybe… it was being a pain in the butt and would work itself out.
I had to calculate the route myself and figured it to be about 2 miles. I have no idea what my pace was, I have no idea if it was better than my last run…no info whatsoever. Thank goodness I was smart enough to check what my starting calorie count was at on my fuel band (806) so I could subtract and figure it out. So I have to wait for tomorrow to train again and see what happens.
All in all, the jog itself didn’t suck…just the inability to keep track of it bummed me out.
