Scratched eye and glasses= no run

Really, how do legally blind peeps run? Of course I should probably go to the eye doctor and get the right prescription... Anyway, my eye has been itching for a couple of days which usually means I've scratched the eye.

It feels much better, but I didn't want to put my contact lenses in yet. Well, glasses slide and I'm legally blind and can't see anything without corrective lenses, so running outside would be out of the question, and for some reason I forgot about the treadmill.

Soooo... if you are still reading my excuses, I got on my bike. I rode. It was terribly exciting. I planned to go 35 minutes, but around 32 I started having mind games. I decided I could only bike if I went as long as my last run. So that meant 43 minutes. So that is what I did.

I did think about the fact that level 2 is a good workout, but I might almost be to level 3. That or I should use a pre-determined workout. Next time.

Tomorrow I will have my contacts in, so I will run!

So here are the stats:
Time: 43:44
Mileage 10:25 (4:16 min/mile)
Calories: 271
Max HR 125
Avg HR 109
In zone (111-129): 19:40 min

Glad you jumped on the bike. I had to think for a minute and make sure it was stationary...LOL!

You can run with one eye. I do :P ROFLMAO! (I'm legally blind in my right eye even with a corrective lense) I don't blame you for not wanting to use glasses. I did it once and it was annoying as heck.

Eh, I'm legally blind, too... I don't even own a pair of glasses anymore, though...

Good for you for getting on the bike!

Lasik=eye freedom!! Best thing I ever did. I love not rubbing out my contact while working out.
