This and That

Just a few things to post about...

My knee is still injured, but is improving. I ran a mile today without major trouble and had limited discomfort during the day. Hopefully, I can try a run again later in the week and see where I am. Fortunately, I was able to bike a little over 40 miles in just under 2.5 hours Saturday, with almost no effects from the knee! Hopefully my training frustration will end this week.

Speaking of my bike, I added a rear-mounted bottle holder to help me carry more fluids for my longest rides (especially since it does not seem the hot weather will be letting up any time soon!). I can now carry 5 bottles (1 aero bottle on front, 2 on the frame and 2 in the rear-mounted bracket) to ensure I will have plenty of fluids for any ride in the next few months.

I replaced broken laptop computer last weekend, Fortunately all my data was intact, it was the computer that died, and there no issues getting all the data moved over to the new computer.

Finally, I realized earlier today that my diet was bad all week without my really paying attention to it. I think I was effictively trying to medicate my disappointment over my knee with food.

Hopefully, by next week I'll have a more upbeat post about resumption of all training...

Sorry your knee has been acting up, but glad to hear that it's starting to feel better.

I'm telling you that if I ever get a bike I'm going to need that many bottles too :)! The heat is relentless and I never feel like I have enough when I run.

Glad to hear that your data wasn't affected with the computer crash - that helps.

I hear you on the diet front, but you'll get back on track and you'll do great!

Hope the resumed training goes well, can't wait to hear about it.
