Week 18 - Day 2: 3 Miles at Lunch

My intentions were to go to the rec center this morning at 5:00 am and take Briar - but I turned the alarm off instead of hitting snooze and, instead, woke back up at 6:17 - too late to go to the rec center. So I packed my running clothes and did my 3 miles during my lunch break. It felt great outside, but I really didn't feel all that well. I was starving by the time I got to take my lunch break, and I always eat AFTER I run, not before...so I felt a little weak and shaky. But I was hopeful that perhaps I was burning off some fat that badly needs to come off. I ran the 3 miles in 28:12...not too great. But no knee pain - so that was great.
As I was coming back to the office, thinking about my appointment with Jay scheduled for this afternoon, I had an epiphany - if I go see Jay about my knee...then for any reason in the next several years I have to change insurance companies - they aren't going to give me any coverage on my knee. It'll be a pre-existing condition. I don't like pre-existing conditions. It's a long story, but I'll just say that they have previously cost me LOTS of money. So I cancelled my appointment. I'm not exactly sure what route I am going to take now...I'm going to keep taking Aleve and think it over for a while first.
