Weekend Whatever

I didn't realize it had been ten days since I last posted.  Yikes!

I last posted on a Thursday.  That Friday, I went to Bend to visit friends for the weekend.  We had a great time.  Saw the new house, did a great hike, tasted some great beer, had some great food.  Monday I was back in the office, the only full time employee not on vacation and dealing with a boss on vacation in Europe who still had internet access.  It was going on week two at home of repairs and at the office they started the remodel. 

On Wednesday we staged a coup and made plans to get a storage unit.  Thursday and Friday I logged, labeled, and moved over 300 file boxes to the new storage unit.  We nearly filled a 9.5' x 30' storage unit.  I wish I'd been wearing a pedometer because I swear I walked at least six miles each day in the office, lugging those boxes around.  My legs were exhausted. 

Yesterday we did our six mile run.  My ankle was sore and swollen from the office moving so I had to walk most of the run but we did it.  When I got home I RICEd my ankle, which helped tremendously, then napped.  Today I've been trying to catch up on sleep and laundry and TV and to clean up the yard from the repair work.  Which reminds me, I forgot to set a timer while I'm watering the lawn.  Better go make sure it's not flooding!

  1. GO YOU ON THE RUN!!!!

    hows the ankle this morning?


  2. so when are you gunna get to be the one in Europe with internet access????

    It's about time that boss of yours gave someone else a turn on the Gallivanting ;o)

  3. Holy exhaustion! All that boxing up makes of things me look at the stack of boxes I am creating at work. I only have maybe a dozen and that even makes me to tired to look at when I realize I have to move them all to a different floor.

    Really I just need a nap.

    My ankle felt funky yesterday, too!

  4. Yes, ankle is still feeling a bit tender. I have the flattest feet ever, and the right foot in particular tends to overpronate. I think with all the box moving (and being on my feet) that I over-stretched the outside tendons on that ankle. It wasn't too bad on this morning's run but my legs are still very fatigued. I keep telling myself it's part of marathon training, to keep going even when you feel like your legs are lead and some body part is throbbing away.

  5. Have you tried running in nike frees? Or the new balance vibrams? They mimic barefoot running, which creates a better form. These shoes have totally helped my form as well as past injuries!

  6. Very nice information shared by you. I was just searching this type of information and luckily I got it from your blog. I like your blog also. Keep it up.
