This past weekend when I was in GF, we were at the mall doing some shopping. Me being the person that can't handle hours of shopping in a big group, and my god-daughter and her sister not being able to handle it either, we decided to head for the pet store. Not such a good idea. They had two great danes there and I fell in love. Seeing the harlequin made me miss my puppy, Duke. Duke was a harlequin/merle. Danes are the most calm, loving, dogs I have met. And great cuddlers. When I get my own home, I hope to purchase a puppy.... it's the first thing on my to-do-list. Being able to get another Dane would be even better!
Last night's spin session left me really sore. Really sore in the arms. I forget how much work we do on our arms on the bike. I usually keep my handle bars pretty low, for a more intense workout and when we do our pushups, which we seemed to have done hundreds of last night, it's a pretty tough ride. But, I must admit, the jiggly of the under arms are at a minimal due to this!
Tonight I was going to go the gym at 745 to do some swimming, since that was when lap swimming began. I couldn't wait. I didn't want to wait until then to go workout. So, a friend called and we met at the gym to run a couple miles. I walked the first half mile just in case, and ran the rest. My knee was fine. Maybe MPA and Jess are right. I might need some sort of knee band thingy to keep my knee in proper place... I think it has to do with the knee cap or something rubbing wrong. I would hate to do more damage. But, when paying attention to where I was landing on my foot and the placement of my knee, my run was successful!
To answer IronGambit's question, the reason why I have ??? next to the Danskin race is because they haven't posted the 2008 schedule yet.
