Smart Jes wins this time

All day Tuesday I walked with a slight limp, because my left knee was hurting. The roommate and I worked out arms and abs at the gym then decided we'd test out spinning to see how my knee felt. Spinning actually rocked! It felt great, and my knee felt wonderful after the class ended. By the end of the evening the "twinge" was coming back in my knee, and by the next day I was limping again. Bleh. Smart Jes told me not to run Wednesday evening, so I didn't. Thursday I REALLY wanted to go to spinning, but my knee was still not 100% so Smart Jes won again. In fact I don't think I'm going to run again until Monday. As badly as I want to run, I want to be able to enjoy more run more. I figure that by Monday my knees should be pretty good (not to mention this weekend is packed with a birthday party, Christmas party, and driving back home to visit Mom for the holidays). I really wish the lap pool at the gym was open, because I'm craving a cardio work-out, but unfortunately it is closed. Of course with the time I've gained from not going to the gym, I have managed to finish my Christmas shopping and nearly all of my wrapping. Yay! The roommate and I have also been doing 10 push-ups (girly-style right now... I'll build up) every morning and holding a 2 minute forearm plank.

I hope to catch up on some blog reading while I'm back home. I swear you guys write too much. LOL. Of course I greatly enjoy reading all of it, so please don't stop!

In response to some recent comments:

P.O.M. and Jess: Thanks for the comments regarding my picture. :-D You guys rock! And POM good luck for your half marathon! I can't wait to run one again in February!

Doug: You don't happen to have a picture of you with a frozen beard and icicles hanging from your face... do you?! I would LOVE to see that!


  1. Sadly, no, I don't have a picture of it. I'm kind of surprised though, because my roommate at the time was a big photography nut.

    If theres a next time, I'll get a picture!

  2. I'm convinced plank and push ups are some of the best exercises for you, so good luck with your continued practice with both!

  3. Sometimes a little break does sooooo much good. I didn't do a thing for 7 days while I was on a business trip and now I feel so great when I'm running. Take care!
