Well, not good this week. Dad got a week in on me while I didn't follow the plan over the weekend. Friday night I had my usual Subway sub dinner. Then Saturday we had Penn Station and Sunday I had Max & Ermas for lunch. Just WAY off the diet plan for the entire weekend and I'm paying for it in this weeks results!
Saturday I mowed the lawn and I think I twisted my left knee a bit. Sunday I was a little stiff, but didn't pay it any attention. We went to the outlet mall again and I managed to pick up some nice "throw-away" items for the marathon weekend in January. I've got some warm pants from the Under Armor store and zip up top from the Nike store that I won't feel guilty about tossing once I get warmed up after waiting for the start of the race.
I then tried a run Sunday evening, which was what I posted about before. My 2nd time running outside with me experimenting on why it was so hard switching from treadmill to running on solid ground... or asphalt... or cement. Whatever :)
Monday I woke up to a very sore knee. I took some ibuprofen and went on into work. Of course I wound up on my feet most of the day. More ibuprofen once I got home and before bed.
Today at work, it was much better, but still rather stiff at times. So I came home, took some ibuprofen and iced it down. It's feeling pretty good now and hopefully it'll be better tomorrow. I think I may hold off on the next run till Thursday, but we'll see how I feel tomrrow.
