Welcome back week! Such a good weekend full of sunshine and traveling to Washington DC - Smithsonian Aviation & Aerospace Museum, Lotte Store, Trader Joes, and Whole Foods Market. Oh I'm dreaming... emoticon

So anyways, the hubby and I got a lot of walking around this weekend seeing as it hurts to run still. The bruises just might be getting worse but I know from experience that is usually a good thing. My cut has finally built a nice scab and is less inflamed, yay! On Sunday I couldn't take it anymore and ran 2 miles (in the daylight). Then afterward I did some icing and crocheting. emoticon

emoticon Food has been rather good this last weekend. We did splurge a little when we hit Lotus Vegetarian in Chantilly, VA on Saturday but it was all healthy ingredients and vegan. (mmm Avocado Sushi) There have also been a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits on the menu so I'm thrilled.

emoticon Hubby and I have been really working hard on doing things that isn't going to stress my knees. I'm still on my streak of working out at least 10 minutes a day - even though the pain. If I can do it with two very sore knees, then anyone can! emoticon

For now we are looking to get a Petzl Headlight for running and a few more reflective Nathan products for safety. What's your favorite night safety item? emoticon

    I'm sending you quick healing vibes. Way to go getting exercise! You'll like this: I have a flashing light that I hook to the back of my shorts or pants when I'm on my bike. Yes, my butt is lit up, but drivers coming up from behind me can see it and will hopefully not aim for it.

    Sounds like you are very oriented toward getting back to normal and you will get there. My favorite night safety item is not to go out after dark if I can help it! Seriously, I only exercise outside in the daytime because it's so gorgeous down here in SW Florida and what small forays I take after dark (with the dog) are around a well-lit house and street with no traffic.

An ounce of prevention is a pound of cure as they say...
