|My knees :(|
The battle of the knees begins. Good thing I have a Costco-sized bottle of ibuprofin 'cause I'm gonna need it to keep me going on my trek to Alberton, PEI. I've adjusted my sidebar to show the total kms I've pedalled so far, (227)including how many are still ahead of me. (1675) At the end of two weeks I am 77kms ahead of schedule:) Hmmmmm...maybe I've been overdoing it just a wee bit..
Hopefully I can get the pain under control. It wouldn't surprise me if it was because of not changing out of my Uggs yesterday into my heavy duty stabilizing running shoes for my 25km ride. Silly me, I should know better, I DO know better! My recreational weekly volleyball game starts back up tomorrow night and I find that it is hard on my knees too - quick starts and stops, quick knee swivels to reach a ball, falling to my knees to bump up a served ball - it all takes its toll but it's so much fun!
Meh - I'm tough, I can take it...I'm just a baby in an old lady's body, can't let that get in my way:) Is it just coincidence that the pain in my knees happened the same day as the most $$ this month exited my account?? I think NOT!! Misery loves company! The tally for yesterday amounts to almost $1500.00!! Yikes!!
The breakdown includes: $725 towards debt, $171 to cable/internet/home phone, $503 to savings (emerg, Christmas & RSP), $55 for food and $30 for gas. Had a good laugh today - opened mail from ING to find out I've been preapproved for a $10,000.00 RSP loan - YAY ME! However, I don't NEED A LOAN!! as by Feb. 28th I will have contributed my maximum through bi-monthly transfers. The days of me borrowing to finance my RSP are long gone and that is one accomplishment I've very proud of.
How's your week going??
P.S. Michael really enjoyed his day yesterday and we ALL enjoyed his Skor Treatza Pizza from DQ:)
