The chiropractor fixed my sciatica, but my knee is a mess. I couldn't run 40 feet today. I don't really understand this. I felt fantastic yesterday, even slept through the night for the first time in forever. By the time I got to the gym, my knee felt tight. And I drove there.

I put a heating sticky thing from Ben Gay on for 45 minutes to warm up the muscle, then stretched it slow and easy. Mike showed up at 9am and I told him I had my doubts. We walked a little, then tried a slow run but it was not to be. I walked 2 miles hoping it would warm up, but no. Was in pain all day. I worked at the desk all day which probably didn't help. I did ice it though. Still hurts right now.

I'm thinking Space Coast is off. I don't know. My coach says I have enough of a base to still run it if I can get going again this week at least. No PR, but he thinks I can still finish. That was kinda nice to hear, even if I'm not sure I believe it.

I'm extremely disappointed but we have 3 days, 2 nights at The Ramada on the beach...with NO kids. I don't need to read Nitmos's "Lust Blog" to get any ideas of things to do if I can't run...my husband has plenty of ideas. He keeps forgetting we're supposed to be going there for a RUNNING marathon, not THAT kind of marathon. The big pig....but that's why I married him...lol Good thing I like marathons.

I'm really sorry to hear this. But I think your Plan B (one should always have a Plan B) sounds even better than a marathon!

That's gotta be some consolation, huh?

The marathon will happen. If not this time, then soon.

Enjoy your alone time with your guy!

THIS is closer to what I do and call "Twisted Sage". Not exactly it, but close.

That's not the name I'm giving it. The guy on my Yoga dvd calls it that. But it's probably a less difficult version of the real pose.

OHHHH!!! I can do that! I forget what we call it, but we do that one every class...LOL. I love yoga. The "warrior" poses are my most favorite. I can totally feel myself relax for those.
