Just over 24 hours to go before my second date with Dr. No.
Geez, I haven't had a second date in years and I truly forget what to do. Maybe I'll shave my legs and just wait to see if he wants to rub his hands all over them again. Massaging and prodding, letting him have his way with me. This sounds like a cheesey porno, but I'm no Marilyn Chambers, may she rest in peace.
So, I'll just have to wait and see what becomes of my knee after Dr. No. reads the xrays and determines the future of my running career.
Until then, I have no sense of direction.
On Sunday I met up with a small group from the five hour marathon group who were running their first 32K run. I had loaded up my mountain bike so I could ride the tails with them while they ran, but it was very windy and cold and by 10K, I was just frozen (I hate being cold), so I bailed on them and rode back to the car. I put the bike back on the rack and headed off to meet them at Andrew Haydon Park, however, by the time I put gas in the car and picked up some Easter treats for my friends, I met them on the way back towards Watts Creek Trail. Everyone was running easily and strong and still laughing and smiling! Way to go you guys! You are already marathoner's in my mind!
The Easter weekend was to be full of fun, food and friends. Several of the Wooo Hooo's had invited me to join their family festivities and I was really looking forward to it. On Saturday, even though it was cool and windy, I had the opportunity to get out into my backyard and start readying the gardens for Mother Spring. It took me ages to pick up fallen branches and twigs, bag them up and then rake and bag some of the fallen leaves. What I found was how easily I tired and my knee was swelling up even more than its normal swollen size by mid day. Needless to say I didn't make it to Saturday and Sunday's Easter festivities, I was icing my knee and taking it easy.
What I do know is my knee is generally feeling stronger, although it does still have a pulling sensation when I go downstairs and it feels like it goes off track sometimes when I'm walking which in turn cause a great discomfort. Swelling, well it depends upon the day. So far, I haven't "tested" it yet with a run, I'll just wait until tomorrow.
I'll let you know how the second date goes. Today I pick up my xrays so I can have them with me for tomorrow's appointment, errrr, date!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
