Day 5 - Get Comfortable with being Uncomfortable

Well, as a few of you may have noticed I didn't do my Friday blog (a friend already gave me heck about that), so I will write this in the perspective of it still being Friday.
Supper was really good and the Parfait was very good!!

Well, today was not a very good day for me.  I tweaked my knee running on the treadmill in class yesterday, so I did not go on the hike which I really enjoying doing. Now don't think I was able to lounge around, no instead I was in the gym for the 2 hours working on the recumbent bike and doing upper body, not really that much fun.
So, I had an emotional day because I couldn't work out to my fullest and I think I was a bit overwhelmed by the fact that the week was almost over I questioned if I had done enough and also by the fact that I still have 3 more weeks here.
I did have some Acupuncture done on my knee and she followed it up with some kinesio taping. She also said no treadmill or steep inclines and declines for a couple days, but I could go on the hike I had planned to go on as it is gravel and not too many hills, so that made me happy.
Since I did not go on a hike today I do not have any pictures of that, but what I do have is a picture of my leg when I fell on Tuesday that was taken the next day. I warn you know it is not pretty.

Well, only half day of working out tomorrow and then I am free until the beatings begin again on Monday morning.
