Ship’s Log–August 1st


My right knee is stiff and achy today so I wanted to do a slow, easy run. Thing 1, however, begged to go do intervals at the track. Even though her “hot guys” weren’t there today, she still put in an impressive effort on the intervals, leaving her aging mother in her dust.

By evening, my knee was really bothering me a lot. I spent some time icing it, and I hope I’ll be able to train tomorrow.

Don’t age, kiddies. It sucks.
