Back To Running Tomorrow

My new Bloggy friend , GQ ran a 5k today and PR'd!! Yippeee for GQ!! May I add that he's testing out my iPod theory of relativity??? I just did....tee hee

Now back to ME...

I think I've gained about 40 lbs this week. I kept eating like I was still running. Whateva...I'll burn it off in other ways. Like jumping jacks or something. Geesh ya piggies. But wait...that's a good idea too....hmmmmmmmm

My knee is still making sure I know I damaged it, but part of rehabbing an IT band is to start running again, slowly. Which scares me because I have a full marathon in 5 weeks. I talked to my coach today and told him the worst thing that could happen is I don't PR. He thinks I will. I believe him. As long as he says what I wanna hear...haha! At times I'm a typical woman....AT TIMES!

Anyway, I'll run Sunday until I feel the twinge of pain, then walk until it stops, run again etc....I figure I'll turn around at the first pain and head back. I am hoping for at least 2 miles. I won't push it though.

I'm waiting for quite a few race reports...I hope everyone posts soon. i can't wait!!!!

KIM... I swear you must have packaged up your bum knee and sent it via express mail 20 miles down the road! My knee has been bugging me for 3 days now! Argh! I've tried talking to it, icing it... but it just wants me to lay off it. I CAN'T lay off it. I have a race this coming weekend! Waaaah!!!

Thanks for the link-love, Kim.

Take it easy on your knee. That should be Job #1. You've set quite a pace for yourself. In the time you'll've run a 5k, a half, then a full marathon, I'll have run two 5ks.

These miles, lined up end to end, would put me at the ocean's edge. Whereas you'd be somewhere 30 or so miles out in the Caribbean.

Hmm .. seems I got the better deal.

Thanks again for the iPod idea. It remains Teh Awesomest Idea 4EVAH!!!1!

As for home brewing: You'll find everything you need here:

NB: A bunch of my friends started home brewing around the same time I did. I'm the only one who still does it. I'm convinced if you have only one motivator - i.e., a love of good beer - you'll eventually give it up - not because it's hard but because it's time-consuming.

You need a second motivator. Mine is: I'm a cheap b@st@rd.

Take it easy on the knee.

GQ, I'm from Boston where we have Sam Adams, as I'm sure you've heard of....anyway, they started out as a home brew. That interested me before I was even a beer drinker. Now I'd like to try to get some yummy flavors going. Have you tried True Blue "blueberry flavored beer??? YUMMY
