Knock, Knock, Knock

Knocking on wood here ...

Ran 5 miles on the treadmill last night, doing negative splits .... and no pain!  Teensy bit of stiffness in the left knee, but I almost have to feel for it.  It could be easily ignored (but won't be). 

I'm trying to be a good patient and doing all the stretches my doctor has recommended.  Really it's not much of a hardship.  Stretching is very relaxing ... well moreso now that I'm finally loosening up and it doesn't hurt so much.

This weekend the torrential rain is supposed to go away (we've had something like 100mm/4" of rain in the last 2-3 days) and leave us with cold, crisp, sunny skies.  I'm planning to take advantage of that and get some enjoyable runs in outdoors.

Been moving my office the last couple days at work.  Surely I'm burning a ton of calories carrying all those boxes and furniture.  However, the binge monster has gotten a hold of me and large amounts of chocolate has been consumed.  Will I ever get control of that??? 

Anyhow, just taking a quick break from cleaning and organizing the new office.  Haven't had much time to check out everyone's blogs but should be caught up again soon. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend

Keep Active!

Great that your run was painless!

I don't think I will ever get over eating too much on some days. The positive thing is that I'm doing it less than before and when it happens: so be it, there's always another day to do it right.
I don't worry too much about it and neither should you, you're doing everything else right, right?
