I decided around 12:30 yesterday I was not going to run the Run to the Plunge 5K. We were having downpours and heavy winds here, and I decided my health was more important for next week’s race in NYC. Around 2, the sun came out but one of my friends told me it had been canceled anyway, so no regrets!
So I headed out for a solo 5K run since the sun had come out. I thought I had spent a lot of time stretching beforehand, but my hamstrings were really tight for the first mile, and then by 1.5 miles, my left knee started giving out. I slowed down my run to a shuffle to see if it would go away, and it didn’t. I started walking for a bit and tried running again several times, and my knee kept giving out every time. So I started walking all the way home (another half mile). By the time I got close to my house, I started another run, and my knee felt fine and didn’t give out. But when I got home, I still elevated and iced it for about a half hour.
I had plans of meeting my friends Missy and Ellen at a local Mexican restaurant at 5:45, but I wanted to make a quick stop at the running store to pick up a 13.1 magnet for my car. It’s well deserved, I think!
I also wanted another pair of socks, so I picked up this pair of pink-lined Balegas.
Dinner was delicious and an excellent time to catch up on life with my girls. We caught the 7:10 showing of Alice in Wonderland afterwards.
I must have been really tired because I ended up closing my eyes several times and took a few naps. The movie was good, but I felt like I was on sensory overload. Johnny Depp was excellent as the Mad Hatter! I missed the Hatter’s squeaky voice though. I really expected a lot more from the movie… not sure what though.. just more?! I much prefer the made-for-TV 1985 version. Do you all remember this one?
Ok, time to clean the house!
