Once again, it has been 103189 years since I last blogged.
I do have a LOT to catch up on, so I’ll just dive into it!
Running / Knee Status
Apparently, the last time we chatted was before my longest run. The good news is that it went well! I didn’t have much pain until the last few miles.
The bad news is that my run this past weekend (about 10.5 miles) was TERRIBLE. My knee felt awful beginning at mile 4 and lasting until the end. I stopped and stretched several times, and almost threw in the towel, but no one was available to pick me up at the moment. I stretched and iced, and then tried running again today. It started to bother me pretty quickly…not a terrible pain, but definitely noticeable.
Needless to say, I am really discouraged and totally freaking out about the fact that the marathon is in 12 DAYS!
One of the reasons I haven’t written in so long is that I was at home this past weekend…I was having way too much fun to be tied down to the computer!
The trip was actually planned a while ago – mainly around going to the Dave Matthews Concert!
But, let’s start from the beginning of the trip. I arrived on Friday night, and was picked up by my aunt and mom (thanks guys!). We went straight to get our nails done, which was a belated b-day gift. I got the gel nails, which I was super excited about, as I had never had them done before. They came out great! 🙂
On Saturday, I was up bright and early to run, then I headed to the lake for a couple of hours to ride around on the boat with the fam. Enter: sunburn. Whoops!
After that, I went home and got ready for the concert! I went with my friend Matt, his older sister, and brother-in-law, who are all huge DMB fans. We arrived a couple of hours early to tailgate, which was a great time.
Then came time for the actual concert, which was just as amazing as I expected it to be.
Overall, this was definitely the most fun night I’ve had in months! Totally carefree and happy. With a side of grape vodka 🙂
I think I’ll leave it at that for now – I promise to return later this week! Cross my heart.
Have a great night!
