I am happy to say that I walked for 5 days straight. This totaled 11.4 miles or just under 2.3 miles per day. Three of those days involved hauling my mass up a hill. I must day that I really feel it in my glutes. Clearly walking uses different muscles than running!
The interior painting project has turned into an anxiety-ridden disaster. Okay, maybe not a total disaster. The kitchen turned out nice, although arguably I still have some areas that need touch ups. Next on my list was the Great Room. I have spent two weeks, a stack of paint chips, hours of agonizing, and multiple failed attempts applying paint samples to walls only to find myself back at square one with regard to color choice. This morning I decided that I need to step away from that all together and work on another section of the house instead. And this my friends, is how one ends up losing interest in home improvement projects...
I'm sorry to read that the painting project has gone awry! Good on you for getting in so many miles walking in the past few days!ReplyDelete
I completely get the color anxiety thing. Just a suggestion (but, I'm one to talk since I go through the same thing you do) perhaps look through magazines to see what colors are used in in conjunction with similar furniture and decor you have. I did this when selecting a color for my kitchen and dining room.ReplyDelete
You have a lot of roads ahead of you! I hope that knee gets to feeling 100% ASAP!
Glad the injections are now over. I really help you can get back to running without problems as you should. That’s exactly why I’m very careful to take on home improving projects. Some things are just worth paying for to get it done. Oh yes, walking is hard work!ReplyDelete
Gosh I hope those injections do the trick!ReplyDelete
It can be so stressful deciding on paint colors! Good luck.ReplyDelete
Hope you are good to go again in 3 weeks, not 6!
I hope the injections work!!ReplyDelete
Here is to the injections working!ReplyDelete
Nice job on the walking and hope the injections work their magic. I hope we never have to paint again....ReplyDelete
we painted the inside of our house, and most of the outside too for that matter. UGGGH@!ReplyDelete
GOod luck on that knee. Get well soon!ReplyDelete
"knee injection" what a horrible combination of words. Much like "eye gouge". Keep the faith.ReplyDelete
Well done keeping moving no matter what, and good luck with the paint!ReplyDelete
