Ugh. Today I’ve been in a bad mood. Probably because I woke up today and my leg still hurts. What I don’t understand is why it started hurting yesterday morning, but it didn’t hurt during or after our run on Tuesday night. I really really hope it’s not a stress fracture. This morning, I iced it at work. It doesn’t hurt as bad right now, but that might be because of the ibuprofin I took earlier. Anyway, I’m not running again until Sunday, maybe that will help.

The bike ride yesterday was a complete loss, too. I got to Sarah’s house and took out her bike, but the front tire was kind of squishy, so I attempted to put more air in it with her teeny pump, but I didn’t have much luck with it. Kristina convinced me that it was okay to ride as it was (well, she didn’t leave me much choice, more like bullied me into it) but as we got about 1/2 way around the park, I realized that the seat was too low. So we raised it and it was much better, until it s l o w l y sunk back down, about 3/4 of the way around again. So I raised it again, and this time it didn’t sink so slowly. So Kristina left me to pedal slowly and painfully back to Sarah’s house while she went around the fly. Not too much fun. However, Sarah does have the most amazing seat on her bike. Very springy. Nice. But I’ve sworn off bikes again, so it doesn’t really matter.

Tonight I’m going to the mall to get new clothes. That should make me happy. I hope.
