pasta and a movie: Run Fat Boy Run

Since we recently upped our Netflix queue, I can finally start to watch some of the running movies folks have been recommending, like Run Fat Boy Run.

Hey, man, whatever motivates you, right? Also, add Thandie Newton to the list of actors tripping me up with their previously unbeknownst to me non-American accents.

For dinner, I'm going to give the exciting rice-sweet potatoes-brussel sprouts medley a go. Yep, I bought brussel sprouts. Super excited about it, too. Mmm hmm. Anyway, I figure I've got to do everything in my power to prepare myself for tomorrow since I'm still nursing a mysterious back of the knee aggravation since we ran Lake Chabot on the 7th, followed last weekend by the even hillier Redwood Regional Park 12-miler. I skipped out on Tuesday's run, did yoga that evening, and cardio cross-training on Wednesday. I felt pretty good on Thursday so while I missed my morning track workout due to solo parenting, I ran about 3 1/2 miles after dropping my son off at preschool. And back came the pain about a mile in. Bummer, dude. I'll see how it feels after 14 - hopefully - miles tomorrow but it may be time for a visit to a sports doc or the like. Sigh.
