The hubs and AN the RB.
Click here for a corny song, and it is meant in the corniest of ways. But it will set the mood for the first part of this post.
So the hubs is not returning today because of a typhoon and a missed connection. But not to worry, he should be home Wed night. That just gives me three more days to make it to my 30 mile challenge (always looking for the bright side).
Second, AN the RB lost her trusty cell phone! So that left me no choice but to do my 10 mile run ALL BY MYSELF this morning (honestly, how did we function before cell phones?). I don't think I have ever done this many miles on my own. It wasn't as bad as I had feared.
-In my first mile I punted a dead bird, on accident.
-I revisited the scene of the face plant, yes there is quite a dip in the road and I can see how a normal functioning person would trip there.
-People were staring at me. I noticed looks of pity, wonder, amusement, confusion, jealousy, and one woman I swear was trying to shoot me with mind bullets.
-I nearly got run over by a 16 year old hauling A down a side street. Seriously, if only I knew your parents!
-I found myself in the ghetto for the last 1.25 miles and wished I had been in the ghetto on the FIRST 1.25 miles instead, when I had fresh legs to outrun bad guys.
-I ran up 36th street! Which is practically a mountain! Normally this kills the run and I walk home, but not today. Nope, today I continued to finish 5 more miles.
-While running 36th street Mountain I cursed myself for officially signing up for Seattle Half this morning.
And here is the four bags of ice I decided to use in my ice bath! It was so cold and felt to horribly good! I was feeling some strange aches and pains in my left leg and decided around mile 8 I would do an ice bath. That kept me going to the end...
Man, my toes were numb and my legs frozen but SO worth it!
So today I am thankful:
-that I hit up 10 miles and felt pretty good. I only walked to hydrate.
-I have an extra couple of days to clean my house and fold laundry.
-for all my new FOLLOWERS!!! Awesome! Thanks!!!!
