I've been laying low in the running department. My knee would feel fine, then it wouldn't. I mean it would feel like it's back to normal. Then all the sudden, I can feel whatever it is that's wrong with it. It's like something is out of place and needs to be put back. It's fine again at the moment. I think I'll try running tomorrow in my new kicks.
Yep, I finally went to the Moorestown Running Company on Saturday. They measured my feet, watched me walk, and all that good stuff. I ran around the store and the parking lot. I settled for a pair of Asics Gel Cumulus 9 - Lime. They felt really good. Hopefully my knee will feel good too. **Fingers crossed** Oh yeah, I'm on their mailing list now. They know about all the local races that I don't have to cross a bridge to get to. So maybe I will do a shorter race first. We'll see.
I'm eating better now. I'm planning my meals because I kinda have to. Maybe I'll notice a difference in my knee and my performance when I do finally run. I really hope it's tomorrow. We'll see. So here's my grub for the day...
Breakfast: Quinoa (w/cooked apples, raisins, walnuts, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and a bit of soymilk) and rooibos tea
Snack: Fresh fruit cup
Lunch: Veggie pita w/hummus and tahini sauce, edamame and an orange
Snack: Granola bar
Dinner: Jen's Mustard Crusted Tempeh w/sweet potatoes and swiss chard (The recipe calls for kale, but the selection at the store was looking kinda busted. I'd really like to try kale next time though.)
Late night sweet tooth: Chocolate soymilk diluted w/unsweetened
