The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!

Let me start with the good news and tell you that I am still on a winning streak and have managed to win two more giveaways since the last four that I reported! Here is what I recently won:

1) Free Entry into the San Diego Jingle Bell 5K from Skinny Runner. Thank You Sarah!

2) My Run, the movie, from Baby Weight My Fat Ass. I have never seen this movie before so I am excited to watch it! Thank You Michel!

I hope I don't start getting hate mail for stealing all of the giveaways! Please stop by and visit these two wonderful ladies and check out their awesome blogs!

Another good thing is that I PR'd at one of my Turkey Trots and cleaned up pretty well at the other! Now onto the bad....

Due to the strange pain that I developed in the back of my right leg/knee I did much of nothing last week. I missed two key runs and one day of cross training.  I spent most of the week being lazy and resting my leg. I guess it was a good thing that I did because my leg is feeling much better now. I am not quite sure what the pain was all about or the actual cause of it but now i know how to get rid of it should it come back. Other than the two 5K's and one day of cross training, I did absolutely nothing! 

I am coming down with a cold!  I am the type of person who never ever gets sick.  My son sleeps with me whenever he is sick and no matter what he has, I never catch it.  I think I may have picked this up from that cold air that I inhaled at my turkey trot on Saturday. It's mind over matter so I keep telling myself that even though I am sneezing and coughing like crazy, my nose is running like a faucet, and I am tired as ever, that I am going to be okay! I refuse to have another horrible week of doing nothing so I have to kick this cold in the butt!  I have a half marathon coming up next Sunday so I need to get better so I can keep up with Shawna as she goes for that PR that she has been chasing!

Good luck to everyone that is running in Las Vegas on Sunday.  I am sad that I didn't sign up for it and now it's sold out!  The Las Vegas Marathon holds a special place in my heart since it was my very first marathon. Blonde Ponytail also blogged about a blogger meet-up on Saturday so you might want to check that out if you are interested!
