as always seems to be the case with me, no running equals no writing. my life seems so empty without and there really isn’t anything worth sharing.

i haven’t been a total recluse. i had another date with the pilot. the theatre again. this time to see war horse. nice again. but still no sparks. and i even kissed him goodnight to see if i’d feel anything. but i didn’t. time to accept that one isn’t going to work.

i’m keeping up a pretty regular gym routine. three days a week of weight training on my lunch hour. upper body mostly though i am adding a little leg work that doesn’t really use the knee and i’m trying to find my abs. riding is also helping keeping me sane but it’s not my run.

i did do a 5k the other day. sort of. we had a company team and i challenged red and another friend who had never run a step in her life to do it. we walked most of it which was rough for me but i was so proud of them both for being out there and it was just nice to be among runners again and to spend time with two friends!

i have decided it’s time for an xray of the knee. it’s been five weeks and though i’ve improved, i fell like i hit a plateau. i need to know what i’m dealing with.

there are other things i could share. but i can’t find my words. they disappear when the miles do. but they’ll be back. they always are.
