Is it any wonder that I feel uptight?, Is it any wonder I don't know what's right?

So, my knee.

After I ran on Tuesday it was SO soar afterward and until yesterday it was influencing my every move. Thursday night Scott and I went to the pool at the gym and swam, probably not a true workout...a lot of playing around went on. Yesterday my knee was still soar, but did not limit me as it had.

My runner friend at work thinks that it is a "common" overuse injury and that the true test will be if it hurts (again) when I run. So, I a thinking that I will get back on the treadmill tomorrow afternoon, or take a road run this afternoon. This morning I am going to yoga and then work on cleaning up the house.

Tomorrow is a week until the 10K...I have come to terms with the fact that I will probably be gutting this one out! Lisa gave me some great run/walk advice that I will definitely put to use! I also found an hour long training session, through Nike, with the coach on itunes and I think I will use that too b/c the forty minute training session is awesome and I have had the best times I have ever had (training) using it!

Also,

As you might have guessed from yesterday's post I am back on the meds. Hmmm...who knew that crying and irritability were signs of depression...uh, I did. I really have to let go of my feelings about the meds and learn that, just like my soar knees, they will probably be a part of my life forever! It is funny how you can outwardly express something, and truly believe it, but deep in your subconscious your mind knows you believe something else!

A word to all of you with indoor outdoor dogs. I went to the dermatologist yesterday b/c I have poison ivy on my neck and a little on my face. I would not figure out how it got there! The Nurse Practitioner said that poison ivy "juice" stays on dogs fur for a long time if it in not washed off. So, at some point the Koz got into poison ivy and then I snuggled with him and the rest is history!

We are getting our front yard re-landscaped. I am SO excited! When it is done I will steal Momma's camera and get some pics. I a going to get some flower beds up front and I am really excited...we are going to put in hydrangea, cone flowers, hostas and knock out roses...can't wait!

Hope Everyone has a great weekend!
Take Care!

Sometimes it's hard to know where I stand,
It's hard to know where I am,
Well maybe it's a puzzle I don't understand.

I've been told by two therapists that I should be on Zoloft for the rest of my life. I didn't like it at first... but over the last couple of months that I've been on it, I've notice such a big change. My husband jokes that I should have started them 10 years ago. :) And I can joke with him! I have more patience, too, and less anxiety. Perhaps it is true, some of us just have wonky brains, just like some people have diabetes. And we have to accept that.

Oh.my.gosh. I've never thought about getting poison ivy from a dog!!

Take it easy on your knee!

Huh... I didn't even know dogs could get poison ivy... unless you have a hairless. Never would have thought.

RICE your knee like crazy (Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevation) for a few days and hopefully you will be doing better? RICE sounds lame but it really does work.

Hope you are feeling better soon!

I tried my run/walk thing again this this morning and it worked like a charm!! How is it working for you?

teacherwoman said...

So, what kind of run/walk method are you using?

Ahh... your knee injury sounds kind of like the problem I am having with my legs.

Hydrangea's are beautiful plants. My sister used green for on top of her individual cakes at her wedding. And, we have a pink one in our front yard. Very pretty plants... but can't handle too much sunlight.

Keep me posted on that knee!
