5 Takin' It Easy To Get Stronger
I only ran twice last week, but this week am planning on returning to my usual schedule (of 3 runs per week). As I mentioned several times before, my knee had been acting up (i.e., swelling a bit after my runs), & I'd been popping Ibuprofen like it was candy. Now if only it tasted as good as candy. ;-)
Have to say that I'm happy to have a little bit of a break, if only for a few days. My knees & I definitely needed it!
Now I can return to running with a renewed vigor. And hopefully the knees will be the better for it too.
Tomorrow is the second run of (the first week of) the BTHR program, in which I'll be running 40 minutes at a moderate pace.
I'm also going to squeak in a little bit of strength-training, probably on Thursday.
I'm doing some last minute travel, so it's going to make working out a bit more challenging this week. I hope to get back into town while it's still light outside on Thursday, so I can run around the lake. We'll see how things go.
I've only packed 1 workout outfit, (which is for tomorrow), so on a purely practical level, I'll have sufficient motivation to get back early on Thursday for my second workout. Otherwise, I'll have to workout on Friday & Sunday for my remaining 2 workouts. ;-)
