Wednesday I had that really intense workout with Vicky. Thursday I was ‘good sore,’ but got out for a run/walk with Noah in the morning, and really pushed myself because I am gearing up to ‘participate’ in Blogger Run Day on Sunday. I am going to check out my time on my Ten Minute Mile Challenge. Which I haven’t done for quite a while.
Then Thursday afternoon I had to go to a couple of appointments. And each time I got out of the car, you would have thought I was 80 years old. Dad’s walker would have come in handy. Thursday night when I walked out to Noah’s yard in the dark, I literally looked like my dad, who in addition to needing a walker is legally blind. Hmmmmph.
This morning I headed out with my camera and Noah–planning to take pictures of ‘signs of spring’ to share with you guys. (I’ll share that in a post tomorrow or Sunday.) And I couldn’t believe it, but I FELT like running. I did the three mile round trip to the mail box and back, and I think I ran more of the road than I have ever run. No soreness at all. Back felt great, knees felt great.
I just can’t predict how my body is going to work. But I try to pay attention to what it is feeling like, and exercise accordingly. I’m not 100% sure, but I think that this is probably the best way to avoid sports injuries.

And a couple of food photos that I haven’t shared yet.
Another small but mighty dinner. Pasta Italiano made by Vicky, and my favorite microwave carrots. These are excellent and so quick. Wash carrots, and cut into bite size pieces (no need to peel) and put in bowl. Top with a little lite butter and Mrs. Dash original. Microwave for a couple of minutes, and stir. Microwave again for a couple of minutes until desired softness. Yum Yumm Yummmm!
And breakfast of champions (well, breakfast of me and Lori)–the big protein pancake topped with homemade yogurt and fresh strawberries.
