As I said in my last post, running and exercises that put weight on my knee are off-limits. But I’m still Divvying (home from work) and last night I ellipticaled a 5K! I used some focused text messaging to power through and keep me distracted. By the way, it took 40 minutes. In case I want to go for an elliptical 5K PR.

OH HAI. After I took the selfie with the skyline, I walked through a spider web. 

Tonight, I wanted to mix it up and swim some laps. Got home, changed into my suit (plus pants and a tech jacket because apparently it’s October today), packed my swim bag and headed out the door to Divvy to the spot that had a 6pm lap swim. Got two steps into the hallway and … WTF?

My knee. My knee hurts. In a new way.

WTF WTF WTF WTF WTF.

I thought my knee would be getting better????? But no, now it hurts in a new way in a new spot while walking. Great.

So now I’m drowning my frustrtions in mojitos. That’s the only reason I keep buying mint plants. And those things grow like a damn weed. I have a lot of mojitos to drink. Or I could do something else with all that mint … I’m open to suggestions.

I also made a really awesome caprese salad with some of that basil. Still waiting for my tomatoes to turn red though. And hidden behind all that mint is rosemary and oregano, I promise.

Anywho, you can help cheer me up tomorrow night at Girls Night Out. Obviously I’ll be skipping the run part (and probably the boot camp part) but I’ll be there for the snacks and swag. And the laughs. Please someone make me laugh.
