Today was a stressful day. Not because of work, but because today I had to deal with some stuff regarding the custody case I am in over my nephew. Well lets just say that dealing with his father and some other members of my family drive me crazy. Needless to day I was frustrated today. Apparently being frustrated makes me exercise harder. Don't like being that way though!
I think I need an alone vacation. You know, one of those vacations where you go out of state and go somewhere no one knows you. Where you can just be you and not have to worry about what anyone has to say about anything.
On to the updates. So yesterday I swam and it was a run day. I burned about 600 calories yesterday, I was determined to get a full 5K in on the treadmill. I hadn't done one since the 5th so I got on the treadmill and turned on an episode of Supernatural, and 50 minutes later, sure enough I was at 3.25 miles! WOO HOO!! And I ran it faster then I have been!! I ran at 4 MPH for the majority of it. So that is 3 - 5K's in the books for me!!
Last week I went to the doctors for a few things. I'm trying to get all tuned up before I lose my insurance. I asked him about some occasional knee pain that I have and he said he wants me to use a bike because its easier on my knees. So tonight after I swam, I came home and ate dinner. I was planning on sitting around and watching tv the rest of the night. I was just going to swim and make it a light day, but I decided I wanted to go try the bike. So I got my daughters mountain bike out and went for a ride! Knee brace and all! I haven't been on a bicycle in 21 years. I was able to go 4.37 miles today which considering it was the first time in like forever I thought was pretty good. I did 4 miles in 28 minutes. An average of 8 MPH. Not horrible!! I will keep working on it. I need to get a different bike I think. My daughters bike feels like my knees are in my chest.
Any suggestions?? Help on this topic is greatly appreciated.
Tomorrow I am leaving work early to go see another doctor about my tailbone pain and my other hernia. I am then swimming and getting together with a dear friend of mine. I haven't seen her in what seems like forever. We are both always so busy. But tomorrow we are going to dinner and then going painting! This is what we will be painting tomorrow night!
My shows all end for the season this week. I'm sad. :-( Supernatural and Arrow have the season finale tonight and Beauty and the Beast is tomorrow. I might cry!! So "Carry On My Wayward Son." I am off to watch Arrow and Supernatural. I will cry later!
Anywho... I hope everyone has a good evening! And thanks for stopping by!
