Name brand, baby

Getting back to doin' werk after an injury is just so ughhhhhhhhhhhhslow. Ya know, if you let it be. Just like when you begin your fitness or weight loss journey (I hate calling it that), it's all about baby steps and slight progression. On Sunday I ran half a mile non-stop at a ten minute pace. That's a shorter distance and slower time than I'm used to, but compared to the last 4 months of no running at all, it's pretty exciting. High five.

Monday was elliptical + quads and booty booty booty booty rockin' everywhere day. 

Tuesday I had the club goin' up was yoga night, but I got there early so I biked for 30 minutes first. I've incorporated yoga moves into my knee therapy since the beginning, but this was my first full-on class in months. I kinda forgot how much I love/hate it and I'm gonna attempt to make it to yoga class once a week now. Plus, a yoga instructor once told me I had really open hips and I thought she was coming on to me, but it turns out that's an actual thing.

Wednesday was supposed to be a run day again with arms and abs, but ya know what? My knee hurt from running followed by leg day followed by biking, so I listened to my body and skipped the run. Coming from someone who had 2 ACL repairs about a year apart, it's not worth a re-injury. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

I don't have any races on my calendar with the exception of a turnt up 5k I'm gonna wog with a beer in one hand and a glow stick in the other in March. Long races aren't even on my radar right now and that's okay. The important thing is to stay healthy, and that includes letting my knee heal properly so hopefully it's strong like the name brand paper towels in those commercials with the blue liquid that disintegrates the bargain brand. You know what I'm talking about.

Come onnnnn name brand paper towel knee strength. (It's not super catchy.)
