All-in-all, despite high temps, the start of school, and my bum knee yesterday, last weeks training wasn’t terrible. Not what I was hoping for, exactly, but if I’ve learned anything over the past few years, it’s that not every week is going to be a flawless execution in the training department. I’m grateful for the random weeks here and there that are full of rainbows and unicorns but it’s not the norm and I recognize that.

I’m happy to report that my knee, while still tender, sore to the touch, and slightly swollen is feeling a lot better. I tested it out with a short walk this morning for coffee with Mr. Wasn’t Just the Wine Talking and later walked to work. It seemed to improve as the day went on. Woo!


Strollin’ through the hood.

Since today was my prescribed rest day, the timing of a day off was about perfect. If it feels as good as it does now in the morning, the next phase of testing will be a short run in the morning and I’ll proceed with planning my training week from there. Fingers crossed!
