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!
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!
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.
