Good New, Bad News

The good news is...
  • My knee/leg is feeling lots better but I'm still giving it a rest.
  • I enjoyed a belated 14 year anniversary dinner with my hubby last night (the kiddos had a Grandma's house sleep-over).
  • I got to sleep in this morning... something I haven't done in a very long time!
  • It's a beautiful, sunny Saturday and the house is quiet... the boys are still at Grandma's.
  • I am catching up on my fellow runners' blogs.
The bad new is...
  • I had to miss our 14-mile group run this morning.
  • I feel lazy & fat.
  • My Asics Kayano 15's are gathering dust.
The best news is...
  • The good news out-numbers the bad news!
Also...
I'm hoping to start running again next week. Maybe give the old knee a try on Monday & see how it goes. It's been very helpful and encouraging to read your comments regarding my knee/leg. It makes me feel good to know that resting it and taking my anti-inflammatories will payoff in the long run (ha ha... pun intended).

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Yup, it's difficult for us runners to be patient, isn't it?! Well, rest, relax, enjoy the peace and quiet, and hopefully everything will work out. Things happen for a reason. Maybe it was your time to relax, and to appreciate running even more. I know I do. Thanks for your words of encouragement.

I don't think runners have patience...I feel so bad whenever someone is sidelined. Hang in there and hopefully your run tomorrow goes well.

I am the worst at taking this advice...but rest is a good thing, but the MOST DIFFICULT thing to do. Hang in there.

What a sad situation: a sunny saturday without a relaxing running. Be sure, better times will come. Happy anniversary!!!

Who needs to run 14 miles when you can celebrate 14 years together????

My husband and I are celebrating 14 this year also.

Hope you can go for a run very soon.
