Three Things Thursday

1.  Would you believe in my 10+ years of running I have never run on one of these....

Until today.  I didn't even run repeats, sprints or intervals.  I needed a nice, easy, cushioned, outdoor run.  It was a gorgeous morning but already 70 degrees.  A little warm.  It was the longest hour of my life, at least for this week.  Dang ITBS.  I'm so over it.  I wish my knee would get over it.

2.  My new find for the week...KT tape.  I've seen it around forever but tried some for my run this morning and IT WORKED!  Well, it took the pain away and left me with just ache.  I'll take it.  I think I just need to experiment with different ways to tape my knee to see which works best.  But I definitely felt a difference. 

They even make it in purple to match my shoes.  Bonus.

3.  Where's this guy going in the draft????

Probably not #2 but hopefully first round!  We'll see.... 

Who are you watching for today?  Or do you even care about the NBA draft?  ; )


  1. I just did my very first run ever on the track a little while ago. LOVE IT! I do it once a week for speedwork and it is pretty fun. Makes me feel like a "real runner" LOL.
    Hope the knee is feeling better soon and glad the KT tape works. I saw a TON of that stuff on runners during Ragnar this week.

    I would really appreciate it if you could help me spread the word... I have a huge fundraising giveaway going on with over $650 worth of prizes.
    Thanks so much!!

  2. Whooohooo, purple KT Tape that matches your shoes is awesome...the fact that it's doing it's job is just an added bonus! :) Happy to hear the knee is behaving.

    Having lived on a track in high school and college, I tend to cringe whenever I land on one again...bleh. But oh how that thing is sooo good for our speed. Keep up the track visits, you'll reap in the rewards!

    Happy Thursday!

  3. I may have to hit a track for a softer surface one of these days...

    BTW, I'm going to be in Utah near the end of July. I'd love to meet up at some point!

  4. I don't care at all about the draft. That track looks inviting.

  5. I have never run on a track either! I should probably start hitting one up to do some speed training!

    Love your shoes by the way!

  6. LOVE THE PURPLE:) FIRST TRACK RUN OF MANY RIGHT:) We should meet half way in the middle and do some track workouts together:)

  7. oy! so will the KT people show me how to tape my knee for ITB? I'm nervous about Saturday's marathon w/ my ITB acting up...I hope they're at the Expo

  8. #10 but no jazzy jazz. Sad. Face.
    Williams #2..... so rigged.
    Love the tape.
    The track NSM. ;)
    Missing my RD in Seattle!!!

  9. That track looks awesome. Nice scenery. The track is your friend.

    Jimmer = The Kings! Yeah, I like The Kings. Maybe my favorite NBA team.
