It had to be something...

It had to be something...this week, my knees...geez...

My knees have really been bothering me this week, somewhat during my runs, but especially afterwards. Usually when this happens, it is because I need new shoes or new insoles. I'm positive it's not my shoes, since I just started breaking in a new pair 2 weeks ago...so, insoles it is! My insoles were custom made at the Foot Solutions lab in Little Rock...and they cost me a pretty penny when I got them...I was kind of freaking out, thinking that I might need new ones, because I could definitely could do without the expense right now. I took them to the store today and showed them to Eric, the on-site Podorthist, who made them for me. He thinks the need a new foot pad and told me to bring them back on Monday and he would try to tweak them, so I don't have to buy another pair! YES! Now the catch: I have to leave them with him for several days, up to a week, if necessary....UGH!

I'm hoping the knees hold up for tomorrow's "long" run, and it looks like a no-running week for me, if my shoes are going to be in Little Rock without me. So, I guess I will be doing other cardio this week instead. Maybe this will be a good opportunity to get back on my spin bike! I hope that it dosen't bother the hip, it has been a little tight this week...but I am doing my exercises every other day, like I should!

Thank goodness you don't have to buy new ones. I completely understand. Running is an expensive hobby! There's so much to buy.

hey there! for the nut butters, I usually mix almonds, pecans and cashews or do them one by one. You just have to process it long enough to be smooth - no additions besides the nuts!
