Super Bowl Sunday

Hello again!

Holy crap. That game last night. For most of the game, I felt like I was on the cusp of a nervous breakdown. And then somehow, the Patriots pulled it off.

Super Bowl Win. New England PatriotsI also enjoyed Katy Perry’s halftime performance a lot! Did anyone else really like those friendly dancing sharks?

Ok, enough football talk (please don’t hate me if you’re not a New England fan!).

Sunday marked one week since my last (painful) run, so yesterday I was nervous but looking forward to trying running out again, after a week of careful stretching and research of exercises to help with runner’s knee. I taped my knee using KT tape to give the joint a little extra support, bundled up, and headed out, hoping for the best.

But, definitely not better yet. 😦 Despite the cold, it was a sunny morning and it just felt so dang good to be back outside running (even with my knee not cooperating) that I ended up going just about 2.3 miles2 Generations Running. Garmin ResultMy mom and I had been considering the possibility of an 18 mile race in early March, but after today’s run, I know that’s not going to happen for me. 😦 Thankfully, we hadn’t registered for it yet. While I had been excited about the idea of a new race and another big challenge, for now, I know I have Β to focus on really trying to clear up this knee issue, while hopefully going for some short runs in the meantime. There is a relay option for the race though, so maybe that will be a possibility!

Oh well. As far as times to be injured go, it’s not so bad. We’re supposed to get another 6-12 inches of snow today, so it seems like a fitting time to scale back on winter running (even if it wouldn’t be my first choice).

Have a great Monday (if you’re in New England, enjoy basking in the glow of that win!)

    That was a pretty exciting game πŸ™‚ And you look so beyond happy to go for your run! Sorry it didn’t go perfectly, but I’m sure it’ll get better for you soon enough. Keep your chin up! It definitely is a decent time to be cutting back on running with all this snow. We just got more inches and a layer of ice too. Needless to say, even when I get to run again, I doubt it will be outside for awhile. I wish winter would just go away already…

  2. You guys cannot catch a break with that weather!
    As far as that game was concerned…I don’t like the Pats, but that was about the stupidest play call I have ever seen in my life by the Hawks. You guys deserved to win after that. REALLY badly played. (And then the fight? Classy.)

    Hahaha ohhh Katy Perry dancing sharks. They stole the show for me.
