I have decided to become a runner. I am using an app on my phone, which is actually really cool. I have never used technology to track my progress before. I am now able to see my runs on a bar graph now. I go just a tiny bit farther each time i go out for a run! The difference is something i might not even notice, if not for the GPS tracking app.
I am also very happy that i took a random turn down a wooded trail today on my run. I had to deal with some STEEP hills, but the trail went a lot farther than i would have thought looking at the trail head. I found a wooded trail, with elevation, that is 2 blocks from my house! And it goes back at least one mile! I love the feeling of running in nature SO MUCH more than running around on the asphalt roads in my neighborhood. There are some spots on the trail with a great view over a valley that just made me smile!
The knee still hurts. It's amazing what the careless of one idiot can do. It's been over a year since the day i was riding home from work, on my bike, and some lady decided to run a stop sign. I have been in pain, every day since. I don't know if i will always have the pain, but i keep telling myself that it will heal fully eventually. It is better some days than others.
Time to go eat. Hmmm, mango smoothie, or a big ol' salad...? Probably gonna be both....
