Woke up to mild temp's and sunshine! When I headed out for my run, it was around 65 with 70+% humidity. I started off with 2 miles with Sophie, then I came home and dropped her off and then headed out again. My original plan was to run 8 more miles, but based on the warmer / humid temp's I decided to shot for 6 more miles for a total of 8. Don't get me wrong - the weather was BEAUTIFUL - but on Monday and Tuesday we had FROST warnings . . . so to say that I am not quite use to warmer temp's is an understatement.
I started out on my route and felt pretty good, so I decided to add a few extra blocks, and ended up finishing 9.7 miles in 1:41. Not the fastest time - but reasonable.
I took some time for a little something to eat, changed clothes and got ready to bike.

I stopped on the Cap City Path, enjoyed a snack of a Luna bar and checked my phone. I had a missed call from my husband. We are in the process of looking for new family room furniture and had discussed possibly meeting somewhere this afternoon to look at a couple of options that I had found. I told him that I was on the bike path, but could head back into town and without much extra effort get to the store in about 15 minutes.
So, 20 miles into my bike ride, we stopped at a furniture store and purchased new furniture. ;-)
Then my husband headed to visit his dad, and I headed back home. Since I had cut off some of the trail, I didn't get the full 35 miles . . . only 31.4 in 2:29. Felt pretty good, other than my ankle and happy to have purchased the furniture. Next is new carpet. Maybe that will be this weekend.
Heading to bed - I just know I am going to sleep well tonight!
