We got into Knoxville yesterday around lunch time and met up with Clay's aunt and uncle. We jumped right into the wedding festivities. We had a lot of prep work to do for a bridal luncheon that was this morning (Saturday) AND we had bows to tie onto programs. Clay and I are staying in their basement which is nicer than our hotel! I feel like I am at a cottage in the woods. This morning, we got up, drank coffee, and went our separate ways... Clay went fishing, I went running!!! This was not a long run though.... HOLY HILLS. I have never run in hills like this before, so it was a great workout. I did three miles and kept about a 9:00 minute pace.
This really is looking down... The picture does not do it justice.
The road just disappears.....
The tricky thing about hills seems to be going down. I know more people get injured going down hill than up hill... that is because we hesitate and hold back, creating a jarring of the knees when we hit the ground. This, is of course what I am thinking about as I am running, which makes it worse. I will see how I am feeling tomorrow, but I may just get on their elliptical, OR, find a nearby neighborhood without as many hills =) Well, time to hit the books. I have an online test tomorrow, so I need to get some studying in.
