I am married with 3 lovely children 22, 14, and 8 and a dog named Koda.  Love to run and be outside.  I believe that if you think you can do it and you work hard enough any thing is possible.   Life flashes by in the blink of an eye, enjoy it while it last and remember there is a lot more to life than running.

Got up and ran the Temple loop (same as the country club loop but I cut up as the country club and go up around the temple) by myself.  Felt good this morning, had alot of my miles below 8's  and ran the uphills strong.  Had to book it home because I went longer than planned.

Went to the rec center this morning and did 35 mins. on the spin bike-climbing repeats then swam 12 laps.  Almost fell back to sleep this morning, I usually get right out of bed but I sat there not wanting to get out, but I did. Right distal vasitis medialis is sore (the quad on the inside right above the knee) I think it is from wearing a foot strike corection thing-a-mujig on my run for to long yesterday.  But I worked it out and think it will be fine.

Will probably take my son out later in the jogger.

Took my son out in the jogger for an easy run.  Was a little tired, it's hard to push the jogger after swimming.

Well I'm feel pretty frustrated, and beat up (I had a really deep massage last night, alot of myofacial release stuff.  It hurt super bad) My right inside knee felt twingy yesterday, from wearing my gait correction strap to long.  I'm pretty sure I'll be OK but never the less I am forcing myself to not run today.  This is something I have to fight myself to do, I find this funny because most people have to fight themselves to exersise.  But I REALLY don't want another injury.  So I will just do some crosstraining later.  Good day!

Went to the rec center and did 45 mins on the elliptical and 25 min on the spin bike.  Knee does feel better.

Did the country club loop this morning, Oh man my horses where on strike this morning.  But my knee felt fine just a little bit of muscle soreness left.  I think I will hang out around 40-45 miles a week until my body and joints get use to this and then I will progress to more.  Had a hard time waking up but I did not want to push the jogger today so I did, my arms are tired from painting ceilings yesterday.  Hope for a better day tomorrow.

I decided after alot of debate with myself to take the day off running and just crossed trained.  My knees are both alittle bit sore on the insides, this make me nervous because I got this thing called Planker band syndrome last year right before the marathon (basicley the sanovial sheath that surrounds the knee was inflammed) and I don't want this again.  But I think it is just from wearing that gait correction strap and then I have been agressively scraping them.

Did 25 mins. on the spin bike and 30 mins. on the elliptical.

Sometimes I wonder if I will ever get out of this patteren, I think I am building slowely enough that it shouldn't be a problem.  And I have had years without injury when I have trained hard.  I just don't understand.  My stars have just not been aligned. 

I also have been working on some pretty agressive streaching, man those muscels can get tight. OUCH!

I didn't run today because I didn't get home untill after midnight and I am coming down with the flu.  Knees are feeling better, I think I am just overly paranoid that I will injure myself and I don't want that.  Hopefully I won't get to sick and my knees will coroperate so I can start up next week and have a good week.
