The hubby wanted to go fishing on Monday morning, so my morning run didn't happen. I decided to a core workout instead. I did the Abs Diet workout and noticed the pain in my knee from Saturday's LR again. I probably should have skipped the lunges and squats with weights! I iced the knee afterwards, took an anti-inflammatory and hoped for the best. By the way, the hubby broke my treadmill last night! It's a long story, but I am in mourning. It's not completely broken, but it's stuck on the highest incline...I guess I can do hill training at home now. I will call NordicTrack and see if they have any suggestions. I have a feeling they'll have to send someone out. Yikes...I just hope it can be repaired...I cannot afford to get a new one right now.
This morning, I made it out to the park around 6 am. The view of the full moon on my drive over was fabulous! I managed to make it 3/4s of the way around the loop before the pain in my knee kicked in. I took a walk break, which didn't seem to help much and then finished my loop. After getting ready for work, I treated myself to a Pineapple Pleasure smoothie...very yummy and only 6 pts on WW! I added an energy boost to it, and I think it really helped. I felt pretty energetic for the rest of the day. Later, at home, DD & I danced to all the silly music on her Wiggles DVD....I think I have found a new workout - The Wiggles Workout! I still have that fruit salad, yummy, yummy! song in my head.
