Why is it that I always think I know better than the experts?
On Sunday I decided that I wanted to run a little bit faster than my Hansons prescribed easy/long run pace. Even though I tell everyone who will listen “The Hansons say injury comes from too much intensity not too many miles” I apparently think I am too good to listen to this advice myself!
Guess what? Monday morning I woke up and my left knee was a little bit inflamed. Not enough to really bother me but enough to notice something was off. Monday is my rest day from running anyway so it really wasn’t a big deal, but it will teach me to not stray from the plan in the future! Lesson learned. By the end of the night I felt fine so no biggie!
Since yesterday was a non-run day and Friday likely will be as well due to travel arrangements/jet lag I wanted to get in some cross training yesterday. Thirty-five minutes on the elliptical while watching the Heat game. We lost, again, but I know my guys will get a big W at home on Wednesday!
I guess Cecil is ready to start pumping some major iron because he jumped up into the highest cabinets where Adam keeps his workout stuff (protein, pre-workout, Gatorade powder, etc.)! I can’t reach those cabinets so the only things up there are A’s things… and my son.
I finally wore my new cat watch yesterday! 🙂
I’m now one day closer to vacation. SOOOOO much left to do before I’ll feel ready or excited, but just knowing it’s around the corner feels good!
Can you believe April is almost over already? Wasn’t it just April Fools?!
