Whatever is up with my knee + Moving to a new apartment =

Total running miles: 36.4
Total biking miles: 53.2
Total time working out: 17hr, 38min
Total Emo Knees: 1
Total moves: 1
Total Grub Hub orders: 5*

On my account. Don’t remember if we ordered through my husband’s … it’s  safe guess that we did. 

So. I rested for 10 days. No running. No biking. No Pilates. Just some swimming. (And packing. And unpacking.)

And then I ran 5 miles. Five measely miles! At an easy pace! (Although after 10 days of not much cardio, it didn’t feel very easy.) And my knee is still having issues. I plan to have it looked at as soon as I can this week. I’m guessing running Ragnar this weekend is probably a bad idea, so I’m trying to find a sub. (Maybe that’s you? Maybe you have a friend who would run 3 legs totaling 14.7 miles on the Wurst Ragnar Team Ever?) And icing my knee as much as I can. Like every other runner who has ever dealt with any kind of injury, to say I’m bummed is an understatement.

Anywho. It was a good month otherwise.

We met a new baby, she belongs to Paula (and her hubby kins). And we all went out for Cinco de Mayo.

I Divvy’d a lot. I made it to Pint Night for the first time this year.

First time in my adult life that I biked more miles than I ran.

Checking in on my 2014 goals:

Weekly Strength Workouts: I did 2. Didn’t want to further aggravate the #EmoKnee.

Bi-weekly Fun Workouts: None. However, with all the burlesque classes I took already this year, I’m covered. I’m also wondering if dancing in heels contributed to #EmoKnee.

Read 12 Books: I started a new book, but didn’t get very far. But I’ll be honest, I’m up to level 70-something on Candy Crush Saga.

Host Something Once a Month: Was too wrapped up in packing up the apartment. But now that we have a new place to show off, hopefully we’ll host stuff.

Volunteer: The Bottle & Bottega fundraiser ended up being successful, mostly thanks to BFF Genevieve. And in case you missed it, I’m doing a Swirlgear raffle right now. And you can support me AND Anne on July 27 at Revolt Against Cancer! Or you can always buy an I Run With Fast Women shirt! Maybe I can’t run, but at least I can keep fundraising! (AKA give me money to cheer me up.)

  1. Such a great month for you, well except the knee. Boo. I deleted Candy Crush from my phone. Ugh, too time consuming and it was driving me bonkers when I could move up a level. Might start playing again once school is out.
