Little Update about my Little Run

I have been whining about a sore knee since my 10 km trail run last Thursday.  And I was especially bummed because I finally bought some new running shoes on Saturday and couldn't wait to try them out.

I have had them on and off about 15 times.  I walked about an hour and a half in them yesterday... and my knee felt normal.   So, I knew there would be a run in my day today.

What I didn't know was that The Captain would want to go out and "get it over with"  (can you imagine he actually SAID that?) before breakfast this morning as he had other things to do and didn't want to wait for his breakfast to digest before we went out for a little run.

Okay then... awake and up for almost 5 minutes before I started getting dressed, eating half a banana and downing half a cup of cofee... I stopped after we got off the boat to check to make sure I did indeed have all my clothing on and off we went!

3 fairly speedy kilometers and it was all over with in 19 minutes flat.

stretch 6 minutes

Hurray!  My knee was good; I was happy and extremely hungry, and so in we came and ate breakfast, even before showers!  A long walk late this afternoon and things are still good.

I am so thrilled to be back amongst the running again.


  1. Oh my gosh, Elle! I am so glad your knee is feeling better. Package some of that up and send it to the great land of Oh-io! ;0) It is really refreshing for me to hear about a great run. And thank you for the comment on my blog tonight - you put a big smile on my face!

  2. Yay for your knee feeling better and great job getting out the door so fast! I love early morning runs, but I also like for my breakfast to be in my belly before i run!

  3. How wonderful that you had no knee pain! I did my run yesterday morning without breakfast too--first thing when I woke up--and it wasn't so bad! I may have to convert to one of those runners who runs right away each day!

  4. yayyyyy!!! this post just made me so happy! definitely speedy! and so glad to hear your knee is doing well!!!!! that has gotta feel just awesome! happy friday!

  5. yeah for that! i hope that it keeps going well! ;)


Love it when you leave me a comment!
