Happy Monday!


May your Monday be filled to the brim and overflowing with love.

As I sit here grumbling because I have to stay still and do nothing (compressing, icing and elevating leg), I realize that I am a blessed woman.  God has provided me with what I need, some of what I want but most of all with love.  I am surrounded by love...

I have been babying my left leg, as much as I can stand to anyway, by icing it, using compression wraps and elevating it.  Of course we won't go into how I walked 10 miles yesterday in 1 hour and 50 minutes and 29 seconds...we will just leave that in the past.  I was walking, not running so I was behaving-ish! (Yes, I realize that is not a word, I just made it up) I have a knot in my lateral hamstring tendon that is a bit sore but not too bad.  All in all I cannot really complain, as I know there are others who are much worse off. I will heal...God is good, All the time and All the time, God is good!


  1. Saturday-Arc Trainer 20 minutes. Bike trainer 20 minutes for a total calorie burn of approx. 400 calories.
  2. Sunday-Walked 10 miles for 110.5 minutes for a total calorie burn of 539 calories or so.
  3. Monday-Rest Day & R.I.C.E. 

Have a blessed day!

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.

  5. Make sure if it doesn't go away in a week, see a physician to determine it's not a torn muscle or a stress fracture.

  9. Hello. Cramp in your leg, you say? Knot a good thing.

    I've just made it out of hibernation. I think if I walked ten feet in 110.5 minutes I would be doing well.

    Blessings and Bear hugs. I'll be back, Shannon.
