Boredom is my enemy!!

Well, my day didn't go as planned today at all.  

My run on the treadmill was BAD.  I was tired, and I think that coupled with the fact that the tread keeps right on going at it's pace, was really hard on my knee, and after 20 minutes I had to walk.  Oy!  My knee was so sore, I had to step off the machine when I was done sideways one leg at a time like an old lady!!  I'm going to do either the bike or the elliptical this week to rest my knee up a bit... and then I think I just have to suck it up and run outside.  Huge sigh.  Maybe I will be lucky and in a week spring weather will be back???

Instead of going to yoga, I took puppy on a new path for a walk for an hour.  I have no rationale for this other than I felt ripped off from cardio for not being able to complete my 30 minutes of running.......

Daughter & I did not go to a movie, because I decided I can't really afford it.  This meant that daughter then went out with friends, and I have been here all day alone.

I have already talked myself out of walking to the store for chips 3 (yes, THREE) times......

    What's going on with your knee? You said the treadmill was hard on it? I have major knee issues (can't run) and the one thing my knee doc said was not to use the treadmill on an incline cos that's hard on your knees.

    And if you look at it the other way, you could have been posting "I talked myself INTO walking to the store for chips 3 times," so yay you!

  2. I also do NOT do well when I am bored. or very sad. or very happy. I need to be just regular, and busy!
