So Happy Together!

So, last Tuesday I went for a run around the trails by my house. I've realized that I LOVE running outside - it's such a great way to balance my mind and my spirit. But running longer distances multiple days in a row is messing with my knees.

I plan on going to MizFit's blog today to research what I can do about that - stretch more or excercises that I can do to strengthen the muscles and tendons surrounding my knee.

Anyway, I opted to be kind to my body and take the next few days off...until Saturday morning when I found myself wide awake at 7 AM. I opted to go for a run...only I couldn't find my iPod or my Nike+ system. I *thought* about running without it, but then I realized that I REEEEEEALLY wanted to use it.

So I tore apart my house trying to find said nifty gadget.

After 30 minutes, I realized that I had wasted enough time on my stupidity and opted to do Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred...LEVEL 2 (as punishment for not finding my iPod). And all I have to say is that I am still in bad shape. Seriously. WHO GETS IN A PUSHUP POSITION AND THEN JUMPS THEIR FEET AROUND? SATAN. That's who.

Anyway, I was determined to find it because I really wanted to go on a run today at I looked and looked and looked. And I found it!

Underneath my gym bag.

My friend's joke was, "Hey Anne. If you find yourself losing your keys, next time try looking under your car."


So after I get done hiding his body tonight, I'm going to sync my run and then put up my cute little MINI from Nike+ - just like Bonnie's. :)

Can't wait to see your Mini! I love looking at mine, it makes me feel like I have accomplished something when I see her jumping around! Take it easy on the knees, you don't want to do damage and end up not being able to exercise at all! I'm not running for that very reason. It may take me a while to get my mileage in, but my knees love me for it!

Yay, you got your mini! And I see you had an awesome run to boot. Way to go on almost making it to 3 miles. Impressive!
