I am back on the open road. If you saw a black blob lumbering down the street behind a jogging stroller, that was me. I used the jogging stroller as sort of a running walker! I made it 2.25 miles in 30 minutes. Very slow but I was at least out there running. Free from the confines of physical therapy and the treadmill. The temperature was nice and I only needed a sweat shirt and ear warmer. It was a little windy but I changed my course to avoid running into the wind much. I am still not allowed to turn while running and have to avoid hills but I was able to pick my way through my old course with just a few changes. Two of my kids went with me and one of the dogs. The kids had all gotten new sweatshirts for Christmas so we made the dog one to match. I had my hubby take pictures so I will try to figure out how to post them later.

I had a little pain all the way through the run mostly from the meniscus, I think. I go back to the doctor tomorrow so we will see what he says.

We got the garage/workout room cleaned up today and ready for weight training. Now that I am done with pt I will have to finish the rehab on my own.

I have done well with two days of cracking. I am worried that I haven't had enough calories today but could only find 10 calorie jello to round out the night. Guess I will have another shake in a minute before bed.

I came up with a monetary reward for my goals. I will report on it in the next day or so but I hope it will help me stay focused.

Better sign off for the night. Hope you all have a happy and safe new year. Be careful!

Glad to hear your knee is better. I am sure you will be in tip top form for OKC!
