Since my sheets are in the dryer and I can't go to bed until they are dry, I decided to spend my spare time here, with you. I realize it is time to buy another set of sheets; my other set fell apart a few months ago and I have yet to buy more. Having more than one set of sheets is a good idea when you have two little kids who end up in your bed every now and then (which means pee, puke and other bodily fluids could accompany them). But I actually didn't sit down to write about needing to buy new sheets.
I am up to running two miles per day this week. Woo-hoo! My knees are feeling great, my abs are getting stronger, and I have learned some awesome (in other words I look like a TOTAL dork doing them) new moves to get and keep my legs strong in places that running doesn't target. So it would seem the physical therapy is doing the trick as far as getting my knees to their happy place. I only have physical therapy once this week and once next week. If all goes well, I'll be up to three miles each day next week and then back to my (somewhat modified) marathon training plan the following week.
I am trying not to stress about my two mile runs after looking at my regularly scheduled training plan for this week: 5 miles, 6 miles, 11 miles and optional recovery runs on the other days. At least I might get to that "happy place" distance during this week's runs since that usually happens around the mile and a half mark.
What is your running "happy place" distance when you feel like you could just keep going and going and going like the Energizer bunny?
