Comments: I planned on running Saturday morning, but somehow I got ‘stuck’ on the PC and did not go to bed until 3 am! :O Of course my weary bones did not get up until 10 am. So I decided to wait until Sunday to run with strict order to the husband to send me to bed no later than 11pm on Saturday evening!
I decided on wearing my gloves and a baseball cap; it was a good decision because it was pretty chilly outside. After my lungs got used to the cold air (I prefer the cold air of humid any day, so no complaints here) I was getting into a rhythm. The run overall was uneventful, the knees ached a little bit, but nothing like last Saturday. At about mile 7.5 my IT band said hello, but it didn’t stay around. 😉
After the 10 mile loop I was thinking about going out again, but I want to be able to start back into my training tomorrow and not be sore. Now my right knee is aching a little, but that’s nothing some Motrin and ice can’t take care of.
It felt good to be back out there and I am looking forward to running in the colder weather. 🙂
