Ups and Downs

So I managed to get my butt out there last week and I ran almost the entire 6 miles. It took my 1:06. Considering I walked about 6 minutes of the run, I felt that I didn't do too bad at all. My knee, however, felt otherwise. I may or may not have done bad things to my knee on this run. I've run since then and it seems to be alright, but I think I need to be careful. Tonight was supposed to be another 6 miler, but I'm postponing that one and did a yoga class instead. It really helps stretch everything out!

Now that we've finished the first two weeks of classes, we're starting to settle into our routine. It's been hard to keep up the healthy eating because I spend so much time just hanging around the apartment. It makes it so tempting to eat all the time! My first weekend up here I went to Weight Watchers and had gained 4.5 pounds! Yikes! I'm back on track and thankfully heading back the other way. Since this is really the first time where I've lived on my own and had to do all the grocery shopping and all the cooking, it's been a real learning experience. I think I'm getting the hang of it though. I'll put up some pictures of the apartment in the next post!

  1. I hope your knee is okay. I hate knees!!! Definitely take it easy. You'll get used to the whole cooking for yourself thing soon.
