Rainy Day Run

Woke up at 6:30 to run this morning. Stepped out into a rainstorm. luckily I was prepared.
 
Exhibit A:
 

 
Plastic bag for ipod case. Essential for rainy runs 😉
 
Exhibit B:
 

 
Soaking wet hair and clothing. Solution? Grab hair and ring out. Repeat every 1/4 mile. Or just give up and wait until you get home like I did.
 
I’m easing back into running after having the shin pain. Today’s goal was to run 4 miles at an easy pace. I’m really bad at making myself go at a slower pace. I don’t feel like I’m doing enough if I go slower. I know I have to get over that.
 
I ran 4 miles in 34:27 for an average pace of 8:36
 
I came home and decided to make some fluffy pancakes.
 

 

 
I topped the three mini pancakes with earth balance, pure maple syrup and a mountain of blueberries!
 

 

 
Now I’m doing some cleaning, paying some bills, doing errands and relaxing until I have to work at the restaurant at 5pm.
