New job and healing

I love my new job - it's perfect for me. And funny enough - they have a running club! I will meet new people and share my love of running with others! Can't wait to get going full time starting next week. This week I am organizing and shopping for new clothes. I haven't really bought any since the weight lose but since it's stayed the same since November I am comfortable buying a few things. I need pants badly and shirts that aren't too big so that's my task this week as well as comfortable shoes. I have been running a little - 4km to 10km area and lots of yoga and weights but I am happy to have the time off for my knee and my stress fracture in my foot. I am happy to take a step back from the situation I got myself in by over training to get into balance again. Bad idea to run 65kms in 6 days - basically doubling my kms...I was frustrated about other parts of my life and took it out by running. Then I hurt myself and got more back to working up to my staple of 2 10kms a week plus a longer run...I am planning a run Saturday with friends so looking forwaqrd to being healthy and happy for it :) Today is yoga and tomorrow is weights.

So I went to a total of 7 job interviews for 3 separate jobs and within a week got all 3 jobs! God does answer pray all on His timing! So since it's quite evident I am going back to work I have some decisions to make! All while recovering from this knee problem. I have been doing little running (4kms) and lots of yoga and yoga fit. Tomorrow I am out for a 10km before diving into some heavy reading material (job offers :) God is Good All the TIME!!!!!!!!!!

Sick all weekend = no running

Yep I got what everyone seems to have - sore throat, can't swallow, stuffed nose, tired, just pain not well. I worked 27 hours in 3 days over the weekend so that's all I managed to do. I need the rest off to recover from this ITB thingy and I am pumped for a group run tomorrow night finally. I pushed myself too hard a few weeks back and really did I number on my knee and on my self. Nice to step back for a few days and be excited to get back out. I changed my shoes...again...with the Superfeet in them in a hopes to find a good match for me...just getting ready for an hour yoga class at - free one of the week :)

Yoga is good

I did it! Knee is rehabbing well I guess because I managed to run and do a fantastic free yoga class online. My new favourite thing has been to do the free class of the week at This is my 4th week and it's great - can't beat free :) I feel it the day after every time too. Key bible was great today - the kids really loved learning about prayer. The power of pray is amazing and I loved sharing it with the little ones. Off to teach another class today and then work.

Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)

11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

24 km turned into a decent 10 km...

24 km with my group turned into 10km with myself as I take some time to get used to my superfeet and heal my knee. It worked out great so far. Tomorrow I am attempting a long run on my own - most likely a 20 km. Well 2 10kms in a loop around my house. Hoping to be back up to working speed. Knowing that God is the one that heals us has been a source of faith for me. I also am sitting on some job offers so I am hoping for some clarity tomorrow on that through my run.
