Gonna Fly Now

I pretty much took it easy this weekend due to my knee injury. By Saturday, thanks to my new Ace bandage and Walgreens ice pack, I was feeling a lot better. So much so that I went for another C25K run on Sunday afternoon. This was the first day of week Seven, so my run went something like this: a five minute warm up walk, followed by a five minute run, a three minute walk, an eight minute run, a five minute walk, and a five minute run... followed by the five minute cool down walk. I swear, that's the most complicated sequence that I had to remember. Anyway, the run went great! I was ready to be done about four minutes into the last five minute run, but then I turned on Gonna Fly Now (who knew the Eagles were blowing their game against the Redskins as I was doing this?) and images of Rocky Balboa running through the streets of Philadelphia inspired me to kick some butt. I completed the run, with no walks other than the ones that were scheduled for me.

I'm still feeling kind of crappy healthwise. Friday, I continued to feel off, but felt better on Saturday. Last night I went to sleep with a tummyache, and I continue to feel that was this morning. Slept in a bit, hoping that it would go away, but it hasn't. I got sick like this last year, around the same time. What is it with the weather changing and stomach aches? Good thing that I'm stocked up on BRAT diet necessities (okay, I don't have applesauce, but I don't live too far from Kroger) so I can meander through my day.

Congrats on the run :)

Music is a great motivator. Its amazing how much better I run when I'm grooving to something.

Glad to hear you are on the road to recovery! When you come to visit we can walk Gibbee in my neighborhood and the neighborhood across the street, which is a workout in itself :) Can't wait!

Okay, I guess I should read ahead before I comment. Glad the knee is doing better, but too bad your tummy sickness is lingering. Glad you've got the staples to feel better (it's funny, because I just barely heard about the BRAT thing just the other day- I'd never heard it before, although where I heard it, it was BRATT- the extra T was Tea).
