Two posts in two days? This must be some kind of record for me. I'm out of control.
My legs are feeling good. Sadie and I hit the trails for 20 miles this morning. That puts me over 50 for the week. I could add to it tomorrow but right now I'm thinking it would be a good day to take off. I'll see how Sadie feels in the morning. (She just barked that she's fine and that she could go running now...but I think she's just showing off because she really looks as tired as I am.) Okay, so I just made a deal with Sadie about tomorrow: If she's limping more than I am in the morning then we'll stay home. If I'm limping more then I assume that means I'm a wuss so I'll suck it up and go for a run.
I don't want to jinx myself and say that my knee is 100%, so...I'll just say that right now my knee is performing at an A level. Maybe even an A+. No, I may be pushing my luck by saying that much, so...I'll just say that my knee is still attached to my body and it moves in all the proper ways a knee is supposed to move. I can even do the knee glide. In fact, I was doing the knee glide when Jeanie and I first met. She asked me to marry her that same night. Yes, it's that awesome. Just in case you missed the link from four sentences ago, here it is again: the knee glide.
No decision yet about the Lake Youngs Ultra in a couple weeks. The only thing holding me back is the length of the drive. It would be a 4-5 hour trip (one way). I hate that gas prices force me to make travel decisions like this. I wouldn't have thought twice about it before. Phooey.
Well, here are some photos from today's run. We ventured to the north side of Moscow Mt. for the first time this year. Even two weeks ago there was still a couple feet of snow that made
it non-runnable. There are some great trails on that side and we've been looking forward to running it. There's still some snow left but it's almost 100% gone. Enjoy.
Keep running, and practicing your knee glide!
