Saturday's Workout: Ran 2.43 miles in a parking lot (more on that later)-Week 6 Day 3 of C25K
Well, I'm back in Dallas after spending a weekend in the sticks. I drove 7 hours to my parents' hunting property. The last hour I spent going over some steep hills with switchbacks. Halfway up the mountain, my gas light came on. I finally made it to my parents' place around 10.
I woke up the next morning and both of my parents had gone hunting. I put Quinn's leash on and took her outside to walk her. I shut the front door behind me...and it locked. Yes, I was stuck outside with my dog in my PJ's and a fleece jacket. I decided to walk to my dad's friend's house (which is about a mile away). I got halfway to his house, and my dad's friend had driven down to meet me (he saw me coming with this binoculors). Luckily he had a key to my dad's house and he got the key and he let me in the house!
I ate breakfast and got dressed to go run. I had to go get gas at a gas station that looked like something that you would see from the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. The gas pump was one of those old ones with the numbers that spin.
I followed my googled directions to Ozark High School (Home of the Hillbillies. For real, that's their mascot.) When I got to the high school, I discovered that there was no football field/track next to the high school. I tried to look up directions to the football field, but I couldn't find any. I looked at the parking lot. It was pretty big. So, I decided that my workout would consist of running around the parking lot. My run went pretty well, too. I covered quite a bit of distance. Here is what my workout consisted of:
5 minutes Warm Up
25 minutes Running
5 minutes Cool Down
The workout went really well, and I was proud of myself for finding a way to work out. When life hands you lemons....you run around the parking lot.
On the way back to the hunting lodge, I stopped at McDonalds to get a drink. I saw that they had Peppermint Mochas! I love peppermint mochas! I got a large (I should've asked for a Venti-that would've freaked the good people of Ozark out!). Verdict: I like the one at Starbucks better.
I won't be running tomorrow. I'll be back on Tuesday!
