Me: Babe, my knee hurts.
Boyfriend: Your miracle shoes didn't work, huh?Me: NO, it works. I think running two days in a row isn't for me.
According to him, I talked in my sleep again last night or early this morning. He said I told him I really like to run and I don't want my knee to hurt so I can keep running. Hah! I must really really like running!
The Treadmill Run. I finished the 3 miles that was on my schedule. And the best part? The knee didn't feel worse, so that's a plus! I also added some inclines to the run today. I didn't finish as strongly as I had wanted because I was out of steam but nonetheless, I didn't go beyond 12:00/mile.
By The Numbers. Keeping track of numbers isn't my forte. Being clumsy is definitely in my blood. Didn't want to risk tripping over my feet and plopping my face against the treadmill, here's the data to the best of my ability. Texting info on the phone while running - don't try it. I'd probably stick with a pencil and paper in the future.
0.5 mile @ 12:00/mile @ 0% incline,
0.5 mile @ 11:30/mile @ 0.5% incline,
1mile @11:19/mile @ 1% incline,
1 mile @ between 10:00/mile to 11:19/mile.
Total: 3 miles at 34:41/mile.
Even though the 1% incline may look like a joke to the pros, I am still happy with them. I gotto start somewhere, right?
A Question: I am planning on running a 5K race sometime. However, my training schedule has me running 10 miles that day. How do you circumvent situations like this? Do share.
Have a wonderful rest of the week.
