Now backwards!

Take a day off and try the same run again, only backwards...

Link to the route map

The Garmin had trouble locating satellites with the clouds and steady rain. It also had trouble finding my heart rate. Good to be out running, but not a very good run. I was still wary of knee pain so I took walking breaks every mile or so for 1-2 minutes. Ended up soaked and cold (37F out today) in the rain that was supposed to be 4" of snow.

Beats working, which I did for a good part of the morning.

I also tried out my water bottle carrier belt thing. It's made by Ultimate Direction. It's a waist pack that holds one water bottle and has a small pouch. Too soon to tell, but it wasn't that comfortable to run with. It sat in an uncomfortable position on my waist while sloshing around more than I'd like.

Good to get out and run though.

sweet... It takes a while to find the exact position that works with those waist packs. They can be a pain in the arse..
