Well today I jump back on the horse. I have been pretty lazy since Saturday...I swam on Monday and did strength work (mostly ab work) at home Tuesday and last night. Tonight I am planning on going to my Powerflex class and doing 20 minutes on the elliptical afterward. Tomorrow, when I run, will be the first true test of what is going on with my knee...but it is time to get going...
We are officially signed up for another event, The Chattanooga Waterfront Tri on July 15th. I say we because my Momma, my friend Kim and I are doing it as a relay. Momma is doing the swim (1.5K), Kim the bike (40K) and I am doing the run (10K).
I would really like to do this 10K in under an hour. For now that is my goal.
I have been looking at the track club schedule to try and set up my plan for the rest of the year... I am thinking of doing two more 5K races and one 10K race this year and I am batting around the idea of signing up for next year's Country Music 1/2 marathon in April.
A funny thing happened in Barnes and Noble yesterday when I went to get a book I have heard a lot about called," Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert (If it is as good as everyone says I will make sure to do a post on it) and, as always, I found myself with the magazines. I have made it clear from the get go that I am a magazine junkie...give me a Glamor, Lucky, In Style, Allure and I am a happy girl!
Guess what I bought yesterday...
One other things that I have read about in the blog world in tempo runs and I never REALLY understood what that meant. It had a great article and explanation and I am definitely going to start doing a tempo run, at least, once a week! It also had a good article on runner's knee that I need to get further into!
Today I am going to see my psychiatrist. It is a scheduled visit that I have had for a while. I have decided I am going to lay it all out for him (including the fact that I took myself off the meds, which I know he will not be happy about) and go with (for the time being :) ) whatever advice he gives me...I guess he is the professional!
