So, here I sit at the computer, typing this post. It’s in the low 70s here, but I’m so cold, I’m bundled up in long pants, a t-shirt and hoodie. I’m also thinking of ditching my flip flops for some socks too. My mother mocks me and blames the weak Mediterranean blood that flows through my veins. I counter with the fact (fact, I tell you!) that her house is colder than Siberia in winter.
Oh, did I forget to mention the icepack I have bandaged to my knee? I did? Well, there, now you know.
I woke up this morning with an ache in the lower inside part of my right knee. Yesterday’s jaunt through the state fair wasn’t any different from any other walk I’ve taken (except for the consumption of some fatty fair food), so I don’t think it was that. Maybe I slept on it wrong. Or one of the cats decided to jump up and down on my knee in the middle of the night. I’m a pretty sound sleeper, it could happen.
Whatever’s wrong with it, I hope it clears up before Sunday. I have a short run planned for today and then I rest up until Sunday morning and my half marathon. The weather forecast so far is favorable for race day. Fingers crossed that doesn’t change in the next two days.
Thank you, ladies, for all the great advice you gave me in yesterday’s post and via email (thanks Chia!). We drove into town last night and I picked up two new sports bras. Today I will give them their test run, lubricated of course with copious amounts of Bodyglide. Here’s hoping the chafage remains minimal.
To distract myself from my overwrought nerves, I’m going to wish Coach Lily good luck tomorrow in her Try-a-tri. Lily, you’re going to be amazing, no worries!
Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! See you next week.
