I've been lazy today after my run plus I have a killer migraine (right after my post about not getting them...murphy's law). The length of today's run was up in the air as I wasn't sure how my knee/leg would hold up. I was going for feel today.
Here is how it all went down....I ran from my place to K's...approximately 1.5k where I stopped the garmin. K and I then did our run/walk series for 2.85k. I then proceed to run 4 minutes/walk 1 minute for 9.5k when my knee decided that I should stop and walk for a much longer period. At this point, I shut off the garmin. I pretty much walked the rest of the way home...with a bit of running here and there...another 2.88k. That equals A LOT of time on my feet today. And it was UGLY! At least the last 2.88k was. My feet hurt...I had taken no water/fuel with me....and I could barely lift my legs by the end. Oh...and guess what....my iPod died on my way to K's and I didn't have my phone with me. That's right...no music for this entire run. Here is another foot pic...no blood this time!

Looks like I'll be spending my Monday lying around and catching up with Runners World!!! Make sure to check back on Tuesday to see what Allison's assessment of my leg/knee is and to see if running the 1/2 is still possible. Warning...if it isn't...I might be a bit cranky...but do have a backup plan!
