Last Day of Ski Lessons and Hoping My Knee Cooperates with Life.

Happy Friday, Everyone!! Who is doing something fun this weekend?? Hot date? Long run? Sleeping until noon?

We had some plans (well, Ken still does), but Brooke woke up with a cold this morning, so we will play that by ear. Ken is headed out to ski with friends tomorrow morning and then to possibly ride with friends on Sunday. I feel like there is a lot of cuddling and chilling happening for the rest of us.

Let’s flashback to Wednesday! It was Brooke’s last day of ski lessons for the season (though she is really excited to ski with Ken and I until the snow leaves us).


Ken got to sneak away from work (lunchtime!) to watch her “performance”. It was really awesome to see how much she has improved in 10 weeks.

Rough place to learn to ski.



Killing it!


She was the only girl to make it into the “A” group. No biggie 😉



It was such a pretty day so we hit up the park after skiing.


Yes, please.


Such a fun day!

Spent most of the night grading….as well as every other night this week.

Since the knee is still on the mend, I have been riding instead. Making sure to keep the knee warm with my ’80s style leg warmers. Always a win.


Proof for Ken that I made it over 100 watts without my knee exploding…


Most of Thursday was spent doing chores and playing outside in the sunshine. Look at this weather love!


Starting to look like Spring and we are not sad about it.

This morning was spent on the trainers. I made it 45 minutes before hopping off to make breakfast. Brooke has been resting most of the day (and apparently that means playdoh and ballet performances to a 4 year old).

I had some things to go to the mailbox, so I decided to try out an easy jog. Made it down and the knee was okay, so I continued on for the rest of a mile. Turned around and finished at home for 2 miles. Dream big. I was conservative with every part of the “run” and ended up with a 9:30ish pace. Really worked on my gait for the whole thing. Still not sure what started the knee issue, so I am being very careful starting up again.

Just dressed like the most non-runner ever. Baggy pants and a cotton t-shirt. So much no…but it was more of a “jog” than a “run”, right? 😉



No big plans over here for the afternoon. Working on a training plan for Ken while giving Brooke all the snacks.

Hope that you have much more exciting plans for your Friday night!! Playing with tentative workout plans for the weekend. May try to run on the treadmill tomorrow so that I can bail if the knee acts up (and not be miles from home). We shall see how it plays out!
