What a wonderful weekend for running! Cloud cover and rain welcome my friend and I to some new trails on Saturday morning. We set out and ventured into new territory at a local College campus. We knew we would have to make several loops of the same trails to get the miles in but we did not mind. A change of scenery was what I needed and this was exactly what I found. I am sad and frustrated to report that at mile 7 I began experiencing a sharp pain in my right knee. A few attempts of stretching did not magically make the pain disappear. At mile 10.33 I finally called it for me. Train smart right?? This is very frustrating but even I know that this odd pains will creep up every now and then.
Following the run I decided to get a deep tissue massage at our new gym we joined. This girl knew deep tissue and after 1 hr and 20 minutes I was on my way back home. Today I headed out for my scheduled 8 miler. It did not happen. The pain was whispering to me and I decided to take a rest day. Maybe I need to rest the muscle and allow the work she did yesterday to have time and recover. Who knows but I feel like I made a good decision. Still frustrating though!!!! Tomorrow I will run!!!
On another note... we painted our kitchen. Well my husband did and I just offered support. First choice was a yellow. What were we thinking?!?? It was awful and down right ugly! A neutral tan would correct this and now it looks just beautiful!!
After... Much Better!
What a differencve the right color makes.
