Keepin’ It Real

>> Friday, April 13, 2007

I achieved a minor breakthrough yesterday evening: I was able to run 4 miles without stopping with little to no knee pain during the run!! This is huge (well, for me at least)! I ran outside and was running slow but comfortable 9-minute miles. I ran loops near home in case my knee went ka-put, but it held up just fine. It did get a little sore last night, and it was a little achy this morning in bed, but still, I’m happy with the run. Now, if I’m just able to feel that good after running 6 times that far I’ll be set....

It’s time I posted some totals. I need to get these in front of God and everybody so I keep “guilting” myself into training. Remember, through all of this, I was trying to heal my left knee, so there are some pretty uneven distances. Here we go:

One last thing. If there are any guys out there that think I must be incredibly lucky to be living with 2 women, think again. When I got home from work today, look what jumped out of the shower and nearly killed me:

That ain’t mine. Gross. Girls are nastier than guys.

You take pictures of strange things!!! :-) That's gross but so were your skin "chips" off your feet! My husband leaves hairballs in the shower, he has long hair. I, on the other hand, do not!

Skin chips... cool!
Hairy things in the shower... nasty... just nasty!

Ooooh, I feel your pain man :)

That is nasty. And I am a girl. As part of my morning routine, I grab all the remaining hair from the sides of the tub and drain and ditch 'em. I also clean out the sink when I am done doing my hair. Otherwise I have to spend $5 on a bottle of drano every month to clear the drains. My sister and I have a lot of hair... but I think I do more of this than her.

I can think of crazier things ladies leave behind..

Glad to see you are running again..

At least it is not collecting with the nasty, black, smelly stuff in the pipes. :-)

Glad you are running pain free!

I have two older sisters, so seen that. The only thing nastier would be if it was hair from two other guys. (Seen that too.)

Ha! It's like our shower in the morning! Although I usually make smily faces out of the hair for Michael's amusement. Thing is, I can't ever blame *him* for the hairy situation, since he has universal alopecia none! So I'm stuck taking credit for each and every clogged drain and hairart in the shower. :)
