Double chocolate expresso muffins

Yummy. The promise of them kept me going through the spin, run, and core. Well, most of the core.

2 hrs on the bike, lots of stuff. Knee was good until near the very end working on a big hill climb set, when it twinged a bit at the top of the knee cap. Backed off a bit, but finished things.

Run 20 minutes. My left knee was a bit weird, but it came around and I had a nice run. 10 minutes from the cross walk to the pretty pedestrian overpass near the girl scout building. Then back. Nice and sunny, perfect temp for a run. Maybe 5 C or so, not sure.

Then the killer kore. It's good for me, I know it is, but holy crap. Pushups. Ug. I'm passing on side plank till I'm more confident of how my knees will take it. Then the muffins! Yay!

Once home I had time to clean up so I wasn't all sweaty icky for my super massage therapist JL. She worked me over pretty good and says my legs have way fewer grumpy muscles than 2 weeks ago. Anybody here in Calgary looking for a good therapist to come to their homes let me know and I'll give you her contact info.

Did a good health care rant on facebook. For those of you who can't see Julie's Mike's wall, and want the rant, let me know and I'll repost it on this blog.
