It took me a while to get going, but I went for a run again. I have been running consistently since we returned from Tennessee last week and I can feel my stamina increasing.
Last week I ran 3 minutes, walked 1 minute and kept that up around the 2.9 mile campground road system and finished up walking 8 minutes to cool down and stretch again. This week I increased the running to 4 minutes, then walking 1 and it seems to be OK. My goal is to run 8 min, walk 1 min and then pick up the pace. Then I will take on more distance.
I know of people who have run marathons doing the 8/1 interval thing and hope to get up to a half-marathon (13.1 mi) one day. Years ago (back in the day...) I ran four marathons (26.2 mi). Over the years age, injury, laziness, lack of motivation etc have overtaken my running. But who knows? Maybe things will change if I keep it up.
After running, it seemed as if yesterday was our day to get a few projects done. Two days ago we bought a bike hitch that sits vertically off the RV tow hitch. We have tried a hitch off the back of the toad (Honda). They seemed to get really wet and bounce a lot back there.
We also tried putting the bikes in the back of the Honda when we travel. We have had the Honda only a year and I am afraid it is getting a little beat up moving bikes in and out of it. So we are giving this solution a try.
After that, I patched up the hole in the basement ceiling around some pipes and cords. Quite a few months back I was trying to get to a leak in the shower and chipped away the foam insulation that was there and never re-filled it.
That was a messy job. I used disposable gloves and tried to move the foam around but it was a gooey mess. We will see what it looks like later to find out if more work is needed there.
Next, we put a temporary fix on the window handle in our 'dining room'. The metal handle/locking mechanism separated from the window a while back when we tried to open it. I called the Tiffin factory and they suggested I use GE silicone on it. Pam scraped off the old adhesive and put the new stuff on.
Next, it was time to attack our mouse problem. I figure it is 0-5 so far with the mouse winning. His tracks were on a sticky trap we have under the sink. That didn't seem to work.
In the late afternoon we went over to Rod and Lisa's. We haven't seen those guys for a number of weeks so it was great to share a meal and catch up. We always love hanging around them and they have made us feel quite welcome of the past few months. It was another good evening again.
We got back in time to go straight to bed and get ready for another beautiful day here at Haas Lake RV park. Hope you are having a good week and thanks for stopping by the Roadrunner Chronicles!
