Since I was busy socializing with some friends on Wednesday night, I missed my group hill training run. I decided to make up the run (not the hill repeats) on Thursday. I ate the goodies in my race package (Vanilla Honey Stinger Waffle- loves these, and Pink Lemonade Honey Stingers) and I was all energized for my run!
I think I'm allowed to wear the race shirt even though I am not doing the race this year because 1) I have done it for the last 3 years in a row and 2) it doesn't have a date on it!! It's the same logo they always use and for once the shirt actually fits me!! For now...

After about 2 minutes I checked my Garmin to see my HR (I try to keep it below 150-155) and my Garmin said 223. Ummm, am I reading that right? I am pretty sure that I would have been dead or close to it if that was right! I was breathing hard but I didn't feel light headed or that I needed to stop so WTF?? I tried to adjust my HR strap and it still stayed in the 220 range. So I even walked for a minute or two to see if it would go back to normal and it only went down a few beats.
If you View Details of my run, you can see my crazy heart rate chart. Max 235bpm?? I think not.
I think I have figured out what went wrong. CoCo was confused and was adding my HR AND the baby's HR together!! That's the only reasonable explanation... After a few minutes she realized her mistake and went back to just displaying mine. Silly Garmin!!
Has your heart rate monitor ever given you a bizarre reading?
It's a good thing I decided to go for my run when I did as there were some nasty clouds looming in the not so far distance.
|Hello hail clouds!|
No sooner did I do that, then the hail started coming down! It was like someone was throwing snowballs at the windows! They were big, but they were smashing apart on impact.
|Hope the garden and flowers are okay!|

I bet you this time thunder/hail storm!!!
