I really have nothing to say about today’s run, other than it proves I can keep running, even with my new, crazier life. I was tired from little sleep, not happy about going back to work, and generally stressed, but I forced myself off the train and High Street to run the 3.5 miles home.
It was slow, both because I was exhausted and I was trying to to easy on my knee. I think that upping my milage by 30% last week, did, as I feared, have some detrimental affects, mainly that my right knee is tight for the first time in forever. Since that was a lingering injury that haunted me for months, I’m icing it multiple times a day and stretching as often as I can remember, and I kept today’s run slow so I could focus on good running form.
And I made it home. Notch one run as a full-time teacher and father of two!
