How was the rest of your Tuesday? I hope it was splendid and sun-shiney!
My work day finished up in a flash which was fiiiiine by me! After my early wake up call, I was looking forward to getting home and planking on the couch for a little while.
Before I left work, I grabbed a little snack…
And spent some time thinking about the upcoming Valentines day thanks to some kiddy crafts.
When I got home, my planking on the couch dreams came true and I enjoyed a solid hour of mindless TV watching and blog surfing while this little lady tried to make up.
She succeeded BTW!
A little while later, it was time for some real lunch. Oh leftovers, how you make my life so easy! I finished up the remaining couple of ravioli and what was intended to be ‘just a few’ sweet potato fries.
Yeeeeaaahhhh I ate them all. Ooops!
After letting my food settle for a good hour, I decided that I would make today a run day since I hadn’t felt any knee-niggling all night and day.
I laced up and hit the pavement. My goal was to just go at an easy pace, do 5 miles if possible but definitely stop if I was worried about my knee.
It was all gravy (except for the first mile when my legs felt like solid concrete) until mile 3, when a very faint pain came back in my left knee. I stopped right away and stretched it out before starting back up. It actually held up fine the rest of the way and I managed to finish the full 5 miles. Hooray!
Love checking off those shorter runs!
I changed into my slippers (thanks nan!), popped my legs up and iced the crap out of my knees and shins just to be safe, and then had a solid stretch session.
That was of course after making Chris take ridiculous running photos of me…
Yep, I’m a real treat!
Now I’m showered and looking forward to some sweet Indian takeaway. It’s been wayyy too long!
Do you guys have your Valentines Day plans sorted yet? Anything fun happening??
