Today I tackled my first ever double digit run! Bring on the 10 miles!!! I was so excited, and then immediately bummed when I discovered that my wonderful Garmin didn’t start at the same time that I started. So, I don’t have splits for the first 3 miles. Oh, well.
Here are the stats that I do have:
Mile 1 (actually mile about 4): 10.56
Mile 3: 10.34
Mile 4: 10.19
Mile 5: 10.10
Mile 6: 9.51 Yeah!
Mile 7: 9.59
When I got home I went to MapMyRun to find out the exact distance and realized that it was actually 10.5 miles!
I think that running that far must have blocked some of my observation skills. When I walked in the house, I decided to throw the laundry that was in the washing machine into the dryer before hopping in the shower. I got it all loaded in and turned it on. I heard it thumping a little, but figured that it was just unbalanced and it would even out soon. I went to the back door to let Brooklyn in and then went to let the dogs out of their kennel. The entire time I kept hearing this thumping. Then I started to hear a muffled meow. Suddenly, I realized what the thumping was and ran to the dryer, flung open the door and pulled out a very scared and gasping for air, Nola!
I was so relieved that she was okay. I shudder to think what would have happened if I had just jumped in the shower right away.
Right now I have some yummy butterscotch bread baking in the oven. When that is done, I’m going to run to the store for some groceries and some DayQuil for my poor husband. I need to get some studying done for class tomorrow.
Have a great wednesday!!
