The random knee problem (c'mon does anyone have pain BEHIND their knee?) has not departed yet. I am pisssed!! I gave it a day off on Friday and planned to run 7 on Saturday and couldn't make it to 40 minutes. Gah! I cross trained that day and today, but it is kind of killer and I can't deal with not running for long! I'm going to start swimming or at least go swimming tomorrow and see how that goes to switch it up at least for now and hope to run on Tuesday. After reading all of the marathon stories I have marathon emptyness in my heart :( I think I could run a flat course in the next month or month and a half. If you have any suggestions up to early October, let me know!
Friday I went on splurge day and bought a bunch of clothes for work and 4 pairs of shoes (yes, 4!). In addition to the 2 new pairs of sneakers that I decided to keep - the pink and silver pair totally didn't look like the picture, so I sent them back. I NEVER go splurging - especially not with shoes. It felt pretty good! On the right side there, I did buy a pair for my husband (so sweet, I know). The rest of the weekend I spent doing things around the house, and whining to myself that I couldn't run.
Have a good start to the week everyone!
