With four miles on the schedule, and the temp at a toasty 21 this morning, I headed outside. I did my favorite out-and-back route. There were a few patches of solid ice, and it was kind of scary running on it, but most of the road was dry.
It felt really good to run this morning! That's the best part about taking a couple of days off--it actually feels good to do it again.
When I uploaded my run, I noticed that Garmin Connect added a new feature to their website--the weather from the time of day and location that you ran.
A few people were curious where I got the number 80 from when I explained how I calculate my activity PP earned. I don't remember where I read that! I read to take the calories burned and divide by 80, and that will give you the PP earned. However, I'm going to start logging the activity PP that is calculated when I enter my activity into the e-tools tracker. Usually it tells me a couple of PP more than I've calculated, but I don't think it'll make much difference in my maintenance... and I want all the PP I can get! ;)
I am SO ready for it to be summer. Going to Key West was a tease--even though it was hot to run the Ragnar in Florida, it was so nice to vacation there, and just walk around in a sundress. Normally, I enjoy the cold weather, but right now I'm really in the mood for some sunshine and warmth. (Of course, when I'm running in the heat this summer, I'll be complaining that it's too hot and I wish it was February again!)
