Three Things Thursday – injury and body image

Three Things Thursday
1. My knee hurts – it doesn’t hurt a lot and it’s more noticeable walking down my stairs. The pain is right behind my kneecap. I really think I aggravated it on the elliptical on Tuesday. So, yesterday I did some lower body resistance band work. I have to imagine that staying away from the elliptical and the bike while doing some muscle strengthening is probably the best idea. Bummer, I really enjoyed the spin/yoga class double workout this past weekend.
2. I have a bruise on the tip of my big toe on my right foot. I think this injury is from a cute pair of shoes I wore last weekend. It actually hurts most when I’m wearing my flip flops. I must be gripping my toes funny. I think I just walk wrong. Or maybe I walk too hard.
3. Even with #1 and #2, I’m going for an easy run this morning. And, I’m still running my 5K on Saturday. Tomorrow is my birthday (can you all believe I haven’t been chattering away about it?) and I’m considering the race a birthday present to myself. Can’t think of a better way to kick of my 41st birthday weekend than with a 5K!!
