Morning! I don't see the text box either, but at least I can use the "br" tag. Trying not to throw myself a personal pity party about the knee, but it flared up again on yesterday's run, too. Actually, it had been going well. I could feel it, but it wasn't bad, but then I accidentally stopped the treadmill while messing with the buttons, and coming to a stop that quickly tweaked it. I started running again, and it hurt. I tried to walk it off for a bit and go back to a run, but it still hurt. So I only got in 3.4 yesterday. I am just feeling like I'm not really making progress right now. I have PT today and I will talk about it with him. The things I'm thinking of are: - Getting a patella strap - Getting a sports massage (or chiro? never been to either) - Getting a better foam roller - Doing those single-leg squats on a downward slope that Dr. Google seems to recommend But I don't necessarily want to throw all of that at it at once, because I won't know what's working. But I'm feeling impatient!
Hey everyone. Good workout morning for me. I hit the track and did 6x200m (34, 36, 34, 35, 35, 34) and then 4x100m strides. Overall it was 6 miles, including the run to and from the track. It's amazing to think of all the people that have run sub-4 miles...I wasn't even hitting that pace in my 200s, and was working at about 95% effort.
I'd like to run again tonight with the running group, but we're supposed to get some really severe storms. If it's that bad, I'll just hit the TM, if we have power and the house is still standing.
I wonder what Eric is up to? Usually when things get funky around here, some new feature rolls out.
