First, I want to give a shoutout to our school's PTA. I am sure none of the members read my blog, but I just had to THANK them! They gave all teachers at our school a $75 giftcard to Target in honor of Teacher Appreciate Week! Plus ... tomorrow they are serving us appetizers for lunch! Woot!
I wanted to test my bitchy knee (thanks Marcy) on a short run today. The weather was nice, a little breezy but nice. However, I didn't want to get too far from home and then my knee start to act like a royal ... bitch. ha!
So, I waited a bit and did it on the thrillmill shortly before the pool opened for laps.
SUCCESS! 3 miles and no pain! They were 3 slow miles, but painless .. and that, my friends, is all that matters. Afterwards I hit the pool (after a long time away from it) ... and had a nice strong swim. I took it slow and really focused on my form. I am thinking my form (or lack of) has somewhat bothered my left shoulder and then swinging the bat sunday made it worse. Tonight... no pain....no discomfort.
9 days until half marry and it will be positive thoughts all the way!
