Yesterday’s Workout: 3 miles @ 30 minutes (treadmill)
Today’s Workout: 4 miles @ 38:37 (treadmill)
After Thursday’s post about my knee bothering me and taking a rest day, I decided to wait and see where I was before resuming my training plan yesterday. My knee felt a lot better, but I still didn’t want to overdo it, but I was determined to get some type of run in.
So after I got home from work, I changed into my running clothes, did some calf stretches, and hopped to it at around 6:00 p.m. I was also dealing with some time constraints – I was planning on going to my parents for dinner – so I knew I wasn’t going to get the 5-mile run in that was originally scheduled. Again, this was probably a blessing in disguise, because if I pushed too hard, I probably wouldn’t feel as good as I do today. So I ran a nice, easy 3 miles on the treadmill at a 10:00 mpm pace. I felt great, and really felt like I could have done the entire 5 miles I had scheduled, but by the time I was done running, I was already late, and still needed to stretch out a bit.
