The run.

I ran one mile.  My knee started throbbing and it is still very sore.  Rather than make things worse, I just walked home.  I hate to say it, but this puts me way behind on my training schedule and for the first time my goal of running in the marathon is in jeopardy.  I better just rest it some more.  I will keep you updated.

When I came home I decided to mow the lawn.  I limped my way through it.  Is there anything more difficult or frustrating in life than trying to string a lawn trimmer?  I spent 45 minutes trying to ravel and wind that perplexing puzzle.

Brandon will be happy to know someone else spends that much time putting new string in the lawn trimmer! Way to go on all the running....that's a lot of hard work, especially in this heat!

Abe it's nice to know that even the greatest have a weak day every once in a while :). Better luck running the next time!
