I’ve been feeling really good lately. My knee hasn’t been bugging me nearly as much. I’ve been able to get in some quality workouts. I’ve been struggling cardiovascular-wise, which I’m taking as a positive (it means I’m getting back into shape)!
I’m always scared to admit these things though. If someone asks me how a workout was, or how my injury is coming along, I try not to say good. I’m terrified that as soon as I admit it, everything will backfire again!
I’ve taken to saying “knock on wood”, while knocking on my head or wood product, if I say something positive about how I’m feeling. Or, I don’t say anything at all and give a thumbs up or hang loose sign.
I realize these things won’t prevent pain and injury, but it sure makes me feel better!
This past weekend I was able to do a “long run” and longer bike back-to-back. It’s an improvement since the weekend before I couldn’t do the longer bike the day after my run.
On Monday, I had a glorious ride outside, and on my road bike! It was a beautiful day, and I rode in shorts and a cycling shirt. Exciting!
Tuesday was a run with my hubby and strength. Wednesday a morning swim. I was going to bike after work and start some two-a-day training, but I just didn’t have it in me. And I wanted a good run today, which is to be determined.
Do you have any weird superstitions? What was your workout today?
