thursday i went for a run.... right below my knees ached on both legs. not sure what that is about. i have never had that pain before but it really bothered me. i hope it goes away and isn't there next time I run. anyone know what that is? or what is causing it?
yesterday morning was supposed to be "the" 5k where I needed to go a certain time in order to determine if I was on goal pace for my half training. i woke up yesterday morning to rain. i DON'T run in the rain! i know i need to get over that bc who knows what the weather will be for the half, but i just can not get up and go run knowing it's already raining. plus with my run from thursday i just wasn't feeling it! and to add to my dismay even more i looked at the results from the 5k in the paper today and realized i could have actually placed in my age group in the 5k bc the runners that are usually in my age group all did the 15K!!! grrr. that's what i get i guess for not running!
Jeremy, however, went on without me, while i stayed in bed and listened to it rain. the race was either a 5 or 15k, jeremy did the 15k. he did awesome! he was feeling good so he decided not to do his run/walk interval until he got tired. turns out he didn't get tired!! he only stopped once and that was for water. his avg pace per mile was over 1 minute faster than all his previous long runs before! he was super excited about this, even if he didn't place yesterday.
so here's some questions for you other bloggers:
anyone know what my lower knee pain is?
how do i keep from getting the knee pain?
how do you get over the "i dont run in the rain" mentality?
