Today's run: 5 km (3.11 miles) in 37:25.
Injury check: knees are not happy.
Muggy. Warm, not much wind. Bit of a long slog. And knee pain. And that's Tuesday done.
In retrospect, maybe I should have given my body another day or so of rest after my speedy run on Sunday. My legs ached a little during my five minute warm-up on the exercise bike and I quickly realised today would not be fast. This was an exercise in stamina.
The Knee started hurting a bit after the first 1.5 k. I really don't know what to do when that happens, because sometimes it just twinges a bit and then it's ok again - so should I stop or power on through?
Today I was stubborn and finished the run. Both knees were tweaking by the end and I am icing the bad one tonight.
I am fairly happy with today's time but I think I'll have to give it a week before I run again. Sad face.
