Gosh, it's getting REALLY close now!
So, I made it to California! I am staying with my brother. Yesterday we went to a yoga class (for alignment) in the morning. The Instructor was really good. I got a nice stretch. We then went to Trader Joe's and bought a lot of healthy foods that I am used to eating at home...veggie sausage, cottage cheese, egg beaters, salad mix, Greek yogurt and fruit. We will be eating breakfast and lunch at his place and go out to eat for dinner most of the time I am here.
In the afternoon we ran 3.5 miles along the water in La Jolla. It turned out to be a very hot run. It is supposed to be cooler here - its going to be 90 degrees throughout the weekend! We ran it in a little over 28 minutes which was very fast for me. I have been averaging 9 min 30 secs on my runs at home. Anyway, it was nice to run along the water and it was very flat. My knee still has a huge scab on it from my fall last Sunday. It felt great running. There was a couple stances I couldn't do in yoga because I can't put weight on it right now. My elbow still has a huge scab too - doesn't bother me unless I wear long sleeves or bang it! I think it is going to be a while before they heel - battle wounds!
For today's quote of the day, I am going to use one of my SparkBuddies...
