3 Run 2, Week 5 (CT5K): That's No Misprint In The Title -- There's A Reason This Workout Smacks of Déjà Vu ;-)
It was raining outside, so my friend joined me for an indoor workout on the treadmills. While I was waiting for her to arrive, I managed to squeeze in 50 sit-ups, & various arm exercises with 5 lb. free-weights. Since I already did the same workout on Tuesday (albeit without my running buddy, due to her sore knee!), I decided to keep things interesting by challenging myself a bit more -- I increased the speed & incline on the treadmill (to higher than usual levels) during the running intervals. We had a good workout, although my friend's knee was still rather sore & puffy. I'm not so sure it's a such great idea for her to be running right now, as it's probably putting additional pressure/stress on her already-inflamed knee. She's going to play it by ear & see how she feels next Tuesday.
OK, that's a wrap.
