Oh Hey Knee Strap, What are You Doing?

IMG_9602

I’m pointing to my knee strap, although my aim is off and it looks like I’m pointing to my massive quad. Moving on…

My knee has been bugging me

Thoughts on the run

  1. My knee is better today than yesterday! Hope this strap works.
  2. Hi black lab friend!
  3. My toe still hurts. When will it heal up?
  4. The grass still isn’t cut. I wonder how tall it will get.
  5. Man I feel really good today. In shape again!

To be honest I don’t remember more than that. I need to do these posts right after I run and then publish them the next day instead of at night or the next day. Because if I have run a second time then I have forgotten my thoughts from the run before.

But I do have another gruesome picture of my foot. It bled more today.

I can’t tell if my other toenail just got blood on it or if it is cracked too? Oh well. For my next run I put a bandaid on and it was better.

Q: What thoughts do you think as you run?

Q: Do you have any current aches?

Thoughts on the run

  1. Oucchhhhh kneee!
  2. My legs are really heavy today.
  3. I feel like I am a snail or maybe a turtle.
  4. There’s no way I’m going very fast.
  5. Where did all these cars come from?
  6. This intersection is never this crowded.
  7. Seriously!! I have to wait for the next light? UGH
  8. Guess I’ll take this time to stretch out.
  9. Hey buddy, you’re such a fast dog. See ya tomorrow!
  10. And this is the point where my toe starts to hurt. Wonderful.
  11. Just kidding, I see you again!! We’ll race again tomorrow I’m sure.
  12. Wow and the intersection is still busy. Missed that light again.
  13. I’m going to eat my new Iron Girl power bar after this!

I bought two of these bars with this nice buy one get one free coupon. They are delicious. I got two of the Cocoa Crunch because well, I don’t really like fruit flavored bars.

They kind of tasted like cocoa krispies in a bar form. Like those cereal bars. I’m kind of sad I only have one left, because I want to eat it, but I don’t want to lose it hahah!

Q: Have you tried these bars?

Q: What’s your favorite bar? I love Clif Kids Z Bars and Luna Bars as well as their protein bar. Now I can add these Iron Girl bars to my list!
