I hope you’ve had a great week! My week was very good, with the lone exception of it being my second full week without running. My knee has started to feel better over the past few days, and I hope to try running again sometime next week if it continues to feel OK. I want to make sure I’ve gone at least a week or so without pain before I try running again though, so I don’t aggravate the injury and end up missing even more time. Better safe than sorry. In the meantime, I’ve gone to the gym a few times to lift weights, but I’ve backed off of the exercise bike and elliptical machine because my knee was sore after the last time I tried those activities.
Are you in the holiday spirit yet? Have you finished your holiday shopping? I haven’t gotten completely in the holiday spirit yet – probably because of the lack of snow – but I’m not complaining at all about that lack of snow, and I’m sure I’ll be in full holiday mode within the next few days. I haven’t finished my shopping yet, but I’ve done most of it and the remainder should be pretty easy (and I hope it won’t be too stressful…). We quit putting up a Christmas tree a few years ago, after we got our cat. He’s a great cat and is usually very well mannered (“usually” being the key word), but we don’t trust him with a Christmas tree and we’re not about to set one up so he has an opportunity to prove us right!
Have a great weekend…
Are you running this weekend? If so, are you training or racing?
Are you ready for the holidays? Have you made any modifications over the years to your normal holiday traditions (like not putting up a Christmas tree because you don’t trust your cat)?
