The Week in Review: Bumps and Bruises...Literally

This week I both looked and felt like the second picture and of course it impacted my goals for the week and of course for the month.  If you read the blog you will know I fell on my Tuesday AM run.  Banged up my knee, pulled my back, and helped an old shoulder injury flare up.  Needless to say not a star performance for me. 

Monday - Regular 3 mile run and 2 minute plank
Tuesday - 3 mile run, face plant, and 1 minute plank (realization that I had also reinjured my shoulder.)
Wednesday - After work - 2 mile painful run (tight back, hamstring, and knee) 1.2 mile walk back to the car
Thursday - Rest day
Friday - Regular 3 mile pre-dawn run (stayed on the feet).  Legs felt better but could feel my back and shoulder.
Saturday - 6 mile run with hubby.  felt good.  One hour of chopping and grinding chicken thighs for my kitties and a really painful shoulder.
Sunday - Three miles with hubby and the realization that plank a day was on hiatus until further notice from my shoulder.

On the bright side I did cook quite a bit this week and brought my lunch everyday Fruit, salt free pretzles, and a Kind bar.  I got hummus for this week. Today we had a yummy homemade chicken and veggie red curry.

Tomorrow I am going to try this recipe I saw in Runner's World Avacado Pasta.  I can't wait. I am obsessed with avacados and tomorrow is meatless Monday! 

BTW I injured my shoulder about 15 years ago.  I was a petsitter and I was playing soccer with a 150 lb Rottweiler who head butted my shoulder to get the ball.  This meme made laugh.  I love animals and I could totally see some of the malamutes I used to walk thinking this.

Hope everyone has a good week!


  1. The "how heavy was the sled" image is one of my favorites. It reminds me of when I was in Alaska a few years ago & got to hang out at a sled dog kennel & see a demo of them pulling a sled. I was sort of relieved to see that they all LOOOOVE pulling the sled and get SOOO excited as soon as they see it. I didn't feel so bad about my marathons anymore. :)

    1. That must have been so cool. I have read that they love it. They are bred for it.
