Running outside and stupid storms.

So I did my first outside run today. I mapped out a 3 mile route around the neighborhood and gave it a go.

Now, it was 95 and 40% humidity, so the weather outside suuuucked. However, it rained a little when I was running, so that made me feel a little better. Then wind started to pick up and that helped.

I'm sure I walked most of the way, but I did run a fair portion of the route. I just kept telling myself to run to this lamp post or that truck or to the end of the street and then I'd see if I could push it any further.

I know I'll get stronger. I just have to work at it.

I do feel as though I could have gone a little harder or a little longer, but I'm kind of glad I didn't push myself to exhaustion -- I'd probably forgo running tomorrow.

So when I got home, nobody was here and it was storming outside, but I desperately needed to shower. I resolved to take the world's quickest shower, as my mother always warned me that showering in a storm could lead to electrocution, which is apparently true, per Clay Thompson, who is always a viable source of info.

So I get in the shower, and have the foresight enough to bring the flashlight in the bathroom with me. Of course, this meant that the power went out while I was in the shower.

In the fucking shower.

I was horrified. And as soon as I clicked the flashlight on, the power came back on.

Other than that, the night went off without a hitch. Now I'm sore, and I'm sure I'll be sore tomorrow (esp. since I did 1.5 hours of weights work at the gym today) but I'll try to run it out a bit.
