Better news to start out the day: I can walk normally today! Also, I don't feel the "creaking" when I feel my knee while I'm bending it. All good news, I think! Still, I'm not going to count my chickens before they hatch. I got some great advice yesterday that "if you can't walk, you shouldn't run". I mean, it's obviously something I knew, but I didn't feel like such a dud for taking a forced rest day yesterday when it was "prescribed" by more than one blog commenter :) One thing I really really really really don't want to do is injure myself trying to be SuperEmily. It turns out I'm not a superhero. I know, I was disappointed too.

I've decided that I'm going to do cross-training for the next three days and see how that goes, and then go ahead with my 6-mile run on Saturday if all feels ok at that point. I've signed up for an hour-long spin class this afternoon, which I'll follow with some weights, and then tomorrow is a Cardio & Pump class.
Now that classes at the college are back in session, so are the classes at the gym...AND all of the places on campus to eat are back open! While I get sick of hearing overuse of the word "like" in a valley girl voice and frat dudes acting like idiots while I'm trying to eat my lunch in the "communal eating area", I do enjoy having more workout and dining options (although I won't be seeing Hot Gym Guy until Friday now. Bummer.)

And now, remember when I told you about the vacuum cleaner not working? Well, Jeremy and I were discussing it last night and, in his opinion, the reason it stops working is because I don't empty it enough. So, I guess I need to empty it, what, after every five minutes of vacuuming instead of after every ten minutes? Give me a break. I don't believe the one person in the house who never vacuums is allowed to have an opinion. He apparently cleaned it out really well...and it still doesn't work. I'd say "I told ya so," but I'm sure he'd have another excuse as to what I did wrong to make it not work. (Yes, I'm venting). I'm all for saving money. I mean, when you don't have much, you have to be, but if it doesn't work, it doesn't work!
|It was about that point last night when I started feeling like this and gave up.|
Amanda and I are going to look at new vacuums this weekend. She's had a death wish on the thing for as long as I can remember.
