Ever have one of those productive days where you get every thing on your "To Do" list completed? Well that was my day yesterday!
Sunday, I woke up really early and met Brian at church. For the past month Brian and I have been making the rounds on all the local catholic churches. It's not like we are picky we just wanted to find a place that we both liked. Picking a church has been such a hassle and more stress than it should be. The catholic church is pretty strict with its regulations - ceremony at a certain time, no aisle runner, have to be out of the church by a certain time - the list goes on. You would think the church would make it easier for people to get married there! We are both catholic although not super involved but we have decided on a church for our wedding so we thought we should start making semi-regular visits and get to know the priest that would be marrying us.
After that I went home and decided to attempt a run. My mom dropped me off 3 miles out and I ran back home. I felt really good, kept the pace easy and enjoyed the sunshine. My knee hurt on and off during the run but nothing like I felt last week. It wasn't sore or achy afterward which made me think that the pain was all in my head.
Later that afternoon while watching football I made a homemade birthday cake for Brian! His actual birthday is not until next Saturday but he wont be here over the weekend. Some of you may remember last year when I attempted to make a homemade red velvet cake and it didn't come out exactly like I wanted. This year I made carrot cake from an old family recipe and it turned out wonderful!!
This morning I got back into my normal routine and went out for a run in the dark! My knee hurt a little but that was nothing compared to my IT band! If it isn't one thing, its another! I am heading to yoga class tonight to hopefully loosen up my muscles!
Have a great Monday!
