In my last post, I said I was adjusting to early morning runs. I spoke too soon! I've been so lazy in the mornings. I also said I was running "most mornings." Ha! I guess I overestimated myself. The Garmin doesn't lie. I have been slacking off. This morning I ran 6.2 miles, the first run since last Monday. And I almost didn't run today!
I woke up before my alarm (which I think is a good think, in terms of adjusting to an earlier schedule). I was considering going back to sleep and skipping my run when I heard a downpour outside. I didn't remember seeing rain in the weather forecast, but I looked out the window and saw that the wall was wet. Thinking I had a perfect excuse not to run, I got up to take a closer look. I put on my glasses, went in the living room, and turned on the light in the backyard to get a better look. The wall was wet, but the rain looked odd. Then it stopped. And I realized that it was the sprinkler, just on the other side of the wall. I think the head must have broken so there was a geyser on the other side of the wall spraying into my yard.
