For some reason unknown to me, I woke up ready to face the day at 3 a.m. Seriously it wasn't cool. I tried to fall back to sleep, but gave up at 4 a.m. and thought maybe I would try to read and eventually fall back to sleep. Well no such luck there either so at 5:20 a.m. I got dressed and went to the gym.

I hadn't been to spin class in about a month and a half because when the weather gets nice, who wants to be inside in a gym? I'd much rather be outside running.

But as I'm sidelined with this knee thing running was out of the picture.

Spinning was great. The regulars had missed me and asked me where I'd been, which made me smile.

Tonight I'm supposed to have a soccer game (if it doesn't thunderstorm). I'm going to play, but if the knee starts acting up I'm going to stop. I'm hoping that running on the grass will be a nice easy way to break it in.

If things go well tonight, I'm planning on trying a short run tomorrow.
