Yesterday's glass of wine with dinner and asleep before 830pm were a huge help. Today was much better, and I was able to concetrate long enough to actually get some paperwork done.
This morning I hit the thrillmill for a run. I must admit, I was extremely nervous, mostly afraid to see how it would work out. I haven't run since my 3 miles on Saturday, which doesn't seem like that long ago, but believe you me, it was.
Today, I donned a new piece to my running attire. The one and only, knee band. yay. Can you sense my excitement? As much as I was not thrilled to wear it, I was hoping it would help with the knee. Overall, the run was okay, but still not up to par. If I had more time and didn't feel rushed to get home and ice prior to getting ready for work, it probably would have been 3 miles. As for after the run, I didn't have that instant tightening feeling on the outside of my knee like I have the past few runs. Good news, right?
Well, I am off. I have plans tonight. I made a committment with somone to grab a couple drinks. As much as I am excited, I am kicking myself for making plans tonight... and forgeting that the Tar Heels are taking on Duke. I have been looking forward to this game pretty much all season!
This, my friends, is one of the rare occasions in which I wished I had DVR.
Run 2.5 miles, 30:49, 12:19/mile avg.
