30 in 30: Days 18 & 19

Yesterday was a crazy day and my messy house was making me feel even crazier. I devoted a couple of hours to getting things straightened up, all the trash out, the laundry sorted, etc. It might be a kind of lame "workout," but it made me feel a lot better and I'm glad I took the time. It would have been a nice day for an outdoor workout, but I didn't really have the time to do that and straighten up too.

Today it was sprinkling and chilly, but I got rain gear on and went out to do a Bridge to 10K run. I decided to do it as an out-and-back run, and turn around when the little voice in my headphones told me I was halfway through the workout. However, before that, I saw lightning in the distance, and I decided to turn around. I was out in the middle of an open field. Then I heard the storm sirens. I yanked my headphones out of my ears and I really picked up the pace. I got about 37 of my 45 minutes in, but I did them at a faster clip than usual. I also cut my cooldown short, as you might imagine. My heart rate monitor says my heart was beating at 179 bpm at the peak and says the total workout time was 47 minutes, but I don't know exactly how much of that was walking and how much was running. I know I got more than 30 minutes of running but don't know how much more.

So anyway, I didn't get struck by lightning, which is always a good thing. Spring weather is so unpredictable! Anyone else getting caught in March Winds and April Showers in the midst of the May Flowers?
