Weekend Update

We had a very busy weekend, which reminded me why I am thankful that I make Saturday my rest day. I am not sure how I would have managed to get even a short run in. We had ballet, then a 2 hour drive to a friends house for a birthday party and a 2  drive home - which just makes for a long day.

Today Sean and I planned to get up and run our 5 miles from 9AM-10AM, as we had afternoon plans to see the Cirque du Soleil. I woke up at about 7:30AM and asked he wanted to run this morning and he said no. I decided to head out anyways as it looked cold, dry and sunny - the perfect weather to run in. I did what I like to call the Tour de Issaquah - a 5 mile route from my house, down Front Street and circle back home. Its a nice flat route with a few stop lights, but this morning the drivers were extra nice waving me through the cross walks even if I insisted they go first. I tested out . a pair of shorts that I picked up on Friday and determined that they are not meant for running, or at least not for me. I need compression type shorts or pants otherwise I just feel to giggly.

After my run my knee felt like a 4 /5 on the pain level so I pulled out my Active Wrap and tried it for the first time.  I think I am going to like this as I am still able be mobile while icing my right knee.  I am not sure what part it is yet, my husband of course suggest I go to the doctor, but if icing is allowing me to stay running I will probably stick to that.

  1. If the icing doesn't work anymore you can always see a doctor but don't let it go on too long before you really hurt yourself.

    Good for you you went out for a run without your husband.
