Today again was a post-work slog.
4 slow, difficult miles. I think it is because it is late, and I woke up earlier then I do most days. Sleepy!
My right knee is achy. I have a new pair of shoes on order. I really think this is the cause of my problem. How many miles have I put on my shoes? Ah, who knows. I got them a year ago!
1st mile 4.9. I don’t remember the incline. I kept messing with it all 4 miles. Uphill was too hard and too low was aggravating my knee.
Quick break and then finished the last 3 miles at 5.0-6.0 at the end. I really wanted to stop and walk after the 3rd mile, but decided to push on. I just had everything timed just right to finish 4 miles at the end of the Daily Show.
Got ice on my knee for a few more minutes and I will spend tomorrow doing some major stretching! I will be doing a few minutes of some good foam rolling!
What do you say to yourself to push through until the end of a workout? I was just saying KEEP GOING over and over again.
