All my aches and pains are much better. However, my ankle is still feeling sore, but it isn't puffy like it was after the half marathon, so I don't know what the heck is going on with it. I got on the treadmill on Thursday and after a mile, I had to stop. Not because of pain, but because of the big brown spot on the basement wall. After looking around, I discovered our hot water tank bit the dust. Water everywhere in the laundry room, and a soaked carpeted floor in the playroom. So I traded running cardio for mopping cardio.
I went for a four mile run on Saturday around the hood, I stopped once because the ankle started to ache. I walked a bit, pain went away, so I kept going. I was afraid to go any further than four miles so I headed home. At any rate, it was lovely to be outside on a run, with all that was going on this past weekend.
So I decided this will be a rest week. I'm switching my focus to my diet. I joined Kelly's Four Week Nutrition Challenge. The goal is to acquire 18 points per week. Each day you count 1 point if you eat 4 veggies. Another point, if you have 3 fruits. One point if you avoid overeating or splurging. My splurging involves picking from the kid's plates, eating candy corn or chocolate, or eating any of Mike's crappy chips. I'm also giving up my weeknight wine, and keeping it to the weekends. So we'll see how this one goes.
Did I just say no week night wine?!??!
