Pretty freaky!!

OK – So just play along with me for one minute.....

I went to see a psychic a few days ago and at the end of our session, I asked her about my running and how she sees me keeping up with a schedule, training..blah blah blah. She then proceeds to ask me if I am having a knee problem..(see previous posts!) and I say "why yes, I am". She tells me I need to stop running through the problem and if I don’t it will have a big impact on my running. So don’t you know, the next morning I wake up and my knee (the back of it) is killing me, because the previous day (same day I saw the psychic) I ran about 4 miles and did some hill work, all with an aching knee. Pretty freaky!! She also told me to buy new running sneakers, but I am waiting until April for that. That’s when my current pair will be approximately a year old.

I have decided to give the knee a rest for a few days, and believe it or not, it is feeling a whole heck of a lot better.
I am going to give it a shot tomorrow with a 4 or 5 miler……..

Now I know what all you non-believers are saying...."Aimee, have you lost your freakin’ mind?"……and yes, that is quite possible, BUT she also said some other things that were on point. Who am I to defy the words of wisdom of a woman I have never met before, who doesn’t know me from a hole in the wall, doesn’t know my medical history...(kind of sounds like a comment section in blog world doesn’t it!!) I’ll take all the advice I can get.

One more thing - I have been refraining from commenting on the whole Red Sox debacle....I am beside myself. They are making such a spectacle of themselves and The Nation. They ought to be ashamed. Eff Theo!

Bad Blogger

I know, I’m a bad blogger, very bad blogger.
No rhyme or reason why I haven’t been blogging, I just haven’ blog, I can do what I want!!
I HAVE been reading, commenting and keeping up on the latest and greatest running blogs.
I’m not going to back pedal back to my last post, I’ll just pick up with yesterdays run.
I went running for 35 minutes. The back of my right knee is feeling a little “off”. Not sure what that is, but something isn’t right with it. It doesn’t hurt, it feels like something is being pulled or stretched. I will focus more on stretching that area next run.
I am hoping that the nice weather here in Boston stays a little longer, running on the treadmill just doesn’t work for me. Outside is where I need to be!

Next up for me is to start looking at some local races to run and work on setting some PR’s.
