Living life in the carpool lane..

You know how some people say they suddenly wake up and hit this point in their life where they realize that they are old?!

I finally hit that point.

I was sitting on the couch last night, on the computer doing my homework.. I had an ice pack on my knee and a heating pad on my back.. I look up from my computer and I suddenly think to myself.. “OMG.. I’m old!”

My body is falling apart.. my back was killing me yesterday.. and my knees cannot handle running..

I’m in my late-twenties.. when did that constitute as being “old!”  My body just ain’t what it used to be..

In other news..

My running has been going well.. my knees.. specifically my right knee.. is feeling it a little bit.  It’s like the most babied part of my body at the moment..

Before I run, I sit there with the heating pad on my knees for about 20 minutes to warm them up.. during the run.. I’m wearing a knee brace.. after the run.. the knees are iced for about 15-20 minutes.. then.. before I sleep.. they get the heating pad again for about 20-30 minutes..

It’s been working so far.. so why stop..

The running schedule has had me doing a 5min brisk walk to warm up.. then two sets of 90sec jogging, 90 sec walking, 2min joggin, 2 min walking.  That has me jog/walking for a little over a mile for 23 minutes.  Not bad for someone that took an entire HOUR to do four laps around the track in high school..

Each day gets easier as I do the repetitive schedule three times a week.. by the third time.. the schedule is a breeze.. but it only gets harder and harder.. I’m ready.. bring it!

Let’s see.. Church news..

I recently went to my old Church.. the Church that I used to sing and do many, many ministries with before I moved Churches to sing for the Filipino Choir.  I went to the 5pm Saturday Mass and they were asking for someone to lead them in the singing..

Singing!?

I signed up for the offer.. and though I am not obligated to go every Saturday.. I am going to try my best to go there as often as I can.. it’s the least I could do.. I love that Church.. I practically grew up there..

That’s all that’s new with me for now.. who know that I’d have anything interesting going on?!?
