Rest days

Yesterday and today were just crazy busy between work and family things so they turned into rest days.  That's probably for the best anyway.  I'm trying to ease back into running regularly and don't want to re-aggravate my knees by pushing too hard, too soon.

Today was an accounting conference in Lansing, MI which is about 150 miles from my house.  Up at 4:15, out the door before 5 and not to run.  Boo.  Two and half hour drive in the pre-dawn gray, sat through a conference all day and then a two and half hour drive home.  Now I'm bushed.  I'll run tomorrow.  In the evening.  No way am I getting up before the birds again.

Hope you all enjoyed a fine Thursday wherever life took you today.

My Thursday has been pretty enjoyable so far! Still have to make it through one Seminar but that will close out my day. I got a few runs in, but not pre-dawn :) I cant imagine getting up that early.

Sometimes, life happens. I hope the rest days mean you can get back to running with even better knees.
