Okay, so I should have run as soon as I woke up. But somehow I don't think 4 degrees (75F vs 79F) would have made much of a difference. I keep telling myself "at least I ran." Yeah. So far, I'm a cynical bitca and I'm not buying it.
I walked up to Foofy Boarding School and ran. I ran 5 laps before I honestly felt like I was going to throw up, so I stopped and huffed my way to the little water fountain at one corner of the field. Walking towards it, breathing heavily, feeling my body slick with sweat, I couldn't wait for the cold, metallic tang of water fountain water. Imagine my utter, dry-mouthed dismay when it wasn't working. I feel like a total wuss.
On the bright side, I've hit on a nice little playlist for running.
Ray of Light - Madonna
What You Need - INXS
All-Star - Smash Mouth
Smooth - Santana w/Rob Thomas
Semi-Charmed Kind of Life - Third Eye Blind
Kiss the Dirt - INXS
Ride Wit Me - Nelly (the one interpolated with John Mayer's "No Such Thing")
Izzo/In the End - Jay-Z/Linkin Park mash
Office of a Busy Man - The Ocean Blue
Baby, One More Time - Britney Spears
The Real Slim Shady - Eminem
Country Grammar - Nelly
Stacy's Mom - Fountains of Wayne
On the other brightside, the arm band that came with Pinky works really well.
