Yep, did 4.45 miles with Mike this morning before my knee screamed "GET THE HELL OFF ME". Being a true athlete (haha) I listened to my body and walked the remaining .64 back to the gym. It was killing me but only for about 15-20 minutes. It feels a little tight right now but I can deal with it. Icing it will help too...

I'm thinking of doing a 5K Saturday in Punta Gorda....I'll have to see.

Endurance Project Phase 2 is starting up on Nov 22nd...very, very excited and happy about that. I think most of our Phase 1 runners will be back!!!!

Off to work, updates later!

Hope the knee heals in time for your race this weekend.

Your knee talks to you? Suuuurrrrrrre it does ... [gq point to head with index finger making "she's gone nutty" BEE-boop! sound effects]

Your toaster, yeah. That I'll buy. (It's only IN TEH BIBLE, people! Look it up! Teh Holy Toaster? hellooooo?!)

But your knee?

Sounds to me like your knee isn't the only joint you've been spending too much time with lately.

Seriously, can you score me some of whatever it is you're smoking? Because my toaster is always "blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda" ALL the TIME and I just can't take its incessant jabbering while straight. But when I'm lightly toasted (as it were) on ganja, the toaster is actually pretty funny.

Kim... you gotta get yourself a 'Cho-Pat Dual Action Strap' for your knee. Google it! Mine came in yesterday and I was FINALLY able to do some totally pain free running today. I was having the same problem... getting to about 4 or 5 miles and my knee would start screaming (yes, GQ... they really do talk) at me. The strap has helped tremendously so far.

Are you doing the Turkey Trot at Edison on T-Giving Day?

Oops! Nevermind! I totally forgot that the Space Coast Marathon is that weekend! Yikes! No 5K runs, I'm sure... lots of rest!

Thank you blyfinn, I hope so too!

GQ...sighhhh....GQ.....sigh again. Of course my knee talks to me. I don't always wanna listen, but then when my knee STOPS talking to me and my foot goes numb, I gotta do what it says. Stupid knee. Is your toaster purple?????

Sherry....1st, thank you for the butterfly award....I LOVE IT! 2nd, of COURSE I'm doing the Turkey Trot!! I'm only running the Space Coast Half. Thanks to the dumb knee, but it's allowing me some freedom. No need to taper before a 13 miler. 3rd, my friend let me try out his knee brace and I couldn't stand it. Thanks though!! What's your goal for the Turkey Trot?? Wanna RACE???? TeeHee!!!
