I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t pumped for the weekend! There are a ton of awesome things going on, and I’m excited to get some cardio in on Saturday. Both of my knees felt fine again today, and I was so tempted to jump on the elliptical after work. But I told myself no (and I actually listened!) and did some abs and arms again. Just a couple more days of ice and resting and then I’ll hopefully be back to normal. I found this quote, and it fits perectly for my injury experience:
“The secret of patience is doing something else in the meanwhile” – Unknown
Yes, I am as pale as a ghost, I know. But I refuse to go fake tanning. Yuck. Now you might not think my paleness is too bad, but when you compare it to this, maybe you’ll understand.
But I digress back to my weekend plans. Paul and a couple of his friends are visiting ISU this weekend. That means a full-on girls weekend! Tomorrow is one of my best friend’s birthdays, and I think we’re either going to the movies or we’re going to rent a movie. Either way, I’m pumped. Girls nights are my fave!
We’re probably going to hit up the local bar, The Snuggery, on Saturday. I want to try to get in 15 minutes on the elliptical or 1 mile on the treadmill. I don’t want to get back into things too quickly. Slow and steady will win this injury race!
Sunday = Bears vs. Packers = The game of a lifetime = What determines my happiness for the next 3 months! Not sure what I’m doing for the game yet. If Paul is back, we’ll probably be together, but if he’s gone, I’m either going to invite friends over to watch it at my house, or if I’m feeling lazy, I’ll watch it with the fam. Nothing like some good old football with my parents and siblings 🙂
Now I’m off to watch the second half of the Bulls game. Derrick Rose: Too big, too fast, too strong, too good!
Do you think it’s better for my knee to do 15 minutes on the elliptical or 1 mile jog on the treadmill? Are you doing anything exciting this weekend? Will you be watching the football games?
