My knee has been killing me. It hurts when I stand up and it hurts to put pressure on. I'm hoping it feels better so that I can do more training today. I'm debating between the stairs ( I didn't get to do them last week ) or running. Or going home and doing my elliptical and watching an episode of Weeds, with my cats watching me from the hallway thinking I'm a crazy lady.

Scot, my husband is doing a 10K on Super Bowl Sunday, he told me that I should do the 5K. My goal was to do it in under 40 minutes....hell or even 40 minutes. But I told him yesterday I don't want to do it, because I don't think that I will meet my goal. Giving up before I even try...that's not good!! I need to sign up so that I can't back out.

I think I have it figured out what half marathon that I am going to do. I think I'm going to do the Long Beach 1/2 Marathon in October. I know I said by my birthday in July, but there aren't any local runs in the summer. Southern Californians are smart, they want to enjoy their summers. My sister in laws, stepsister, Cheetah, said that she will run it with me. She is a runner, but hurt her Achilles tendon so she can't go as fast as she would in the past, which works just fine for me!

I'm also walking a 5K in March or April with my mom. She has always wanted to do a race, but due to her hip replacements she can't run. So I told her if she signed up I'd walk with her. I'm looking forward to it.
