Today's run was actually pretty good! It took a little while to shake the lead out of my legs, but after about a mile I actually started to lose track of the distance! I hope it's like that for my long run this week! HA!
I was feeling a bit ambitious, so I also did an upper body workout at the gym! According to my 10k program, I was supposed to do this anyway - but it always seemed like too much! I won't lie - it was pretty tough. My knees were giving me trouble towards the end. It wasn't bad - only when I was getting up from one machine to go to the next. After working out (with Pete - I LOVE going to the gym with him - it's been far too long!) we took the kids to the pool. That is when my knees decided they had enough for the day. Honestly - I have hardly used a chair in the past two weeks. I took some advil tonight in hopes of relaxing any inflammation. Tomorrow I am SO taking the day off. I mean from everything. Don't come over, because my house will not be cleaned tomorrow. I will take my son to and from school - but in the car. I will make meals for everyone, but in between that - I will be sitting. I'm supposed to run 3.5 miles on Saturday and I want to make sure my knees are ok!
On the weight watcher's side of things - I have only lost .8 of a pound this week. UGH this nickel and dime crap is REALLY starting to get on my nerves. I have decided to take the Weight Watcher's Thanksgiving challenge. Don't ask - because I have not read all the information yet. I'll fill you all in tomorrow! I know that 1. that time of the month is just around the corner and 2. I most likely still have some of that medicine in my system. I am PRAYING that I start seeing some real loss next week. I truly have increased my exercise - to the point where I am just blown away that I have not lost anything!
Well, it's very late and I'm very tired. I'd say it's time to call it a day! Thanks for reading! Have a WONDERFUL night! -Monica
