Get faster!


so my knee is bummed for a while. I have to build up my strength...so in the mean time...

Swim, and Spin.

Tomorrow (not sure in what order) I will swim and cycle... am and pm.

I've put the Ralston Creek Half on my radar..and I want to feel good about 10miles of it. lol I think that sounds realistic for an outdoor winter race! Brrr...
I also put Pizza on my radar for the afternoon after the race. Heck.. maybe even a few beers!!!

SO back to getting faster.

500 yards

Uh, what a challenge, I don't know why it was so tough.

I went out to the gym, couldn't find the new location, what shoul have taken 15 minutes took 25....
Got to the pool & swam like a brick, I felt heavy & akward.
Oh well 500 done & a soak in the hot tub.

Whoa is KNEE

I'm cheesey...yes..

I went to the Karma function last night tried on some killer awesome Saucony's which I may go back and get (like I need another pair of running shoes) Monday.
When I tried them on I jumped on the treadmill and did a 1/4 mile... super easy.. on 5.5 and now today at 830 am my knee is the size of my head.. WHICH IS HUGE!!! *giggle*

Ok.. its funny that my head is huge..not that my knee is huge. I've been over this with this knee.. I've explained "knee.. its time to get better." my knee seems to want to agree to that...but cant seem to commit! So... back to the Physical Therapist I go.. who will tell me.. you need more stretching and strength exercises which I will agree to do and wont do..anyway..vicious cycle vicious cycle.

One Day I Will Learn

He won! Well he is always a winner to me (2nd place)

My brother ran in the jingle bell run and got 2nd in his age group!

What the what???!!! I was so excited...

A little bummed that I couldnt run with him (eat his dust), but at breakfast race morning, it hit me and I teared up (ok I cried) i knew he was going to get 1st, 2nd or 3rd. I texted my family and friends and told them not to tell him..as he was nervous anyway...

And low and behold!!! 2nd place finisher!! woot woot!

So proud! HE's so gracious and was proud of himself as well... he didnt expect it, and actually didnt feel all that great about his time...

27:33 faster than I can dream to be!

Congratulations to my bro!
