1. Thank you again to all of you for your KIND words of support while I make this transition from working to self-employed. It's scary, exciting and a whole other list of emotions that could really make me go crazy! But your continued support means the world to me, so thank you again from the bottom of my heart. My boss has attempted to scramble and try to keep me still. I'm flattered, but it's a little to late. He offered me a few months off until tax time and then more money. But...as nice as that sounds, I need to attempt to make a go at it. And although he has no clue I'm going out on my own, it does feel like a small safety net. Who knows, I could fall flat on my face. It's good to know I "potentially" still have a place to go back to work.
2. My knees are still a problem. But they are not nearly as bad as they have been. Meet my new best friend:
Yes, that is a rolling pin. I know many of you use the Stick to self massage your aching, tired muscles, but I just couldn't justify spending $20 on a plastic stick. I had this rolling pin laying around since we got married. I don't bake so don't worry, I won't roll out my glutes then offer to bake you a pie. It works just as well and in my opinion is even better since it was, well - free :) I am rolling out my quads and my calves and it seems to really help with the soreness in my knees. I think that my quads were tight and were pulling on my knees. So every night I have a little torture session. My hubbs loves to assist in this ;) It hurts so good! If you are looking for a self
3. Yesterday I took a rest day. It had been 9 days since my last. Wow, that sounds like a confession I would tell my priest! But it felt soooo good to go home and do nothing but a little core work and play with the pooch. Today though is back to business. I'm heading into San Francisco for a charity run and am going to add on some miles to the scheduled 5 mile run. I have 12-14 I need to get done and San Francisco's cool temps are calling my name! Best part, I get to run with two awesome chica's - Julianne and Kristen! Can't wait to see you ladies!
It's almost Friday! Enjoy your day!
Happy Thursday and Happy Running peeps!
