After some rest...

by - Monday, March 31, 2008

I needed a lot of rest lately for sore muscles and joints. So I took off Friday and Saturday. That was a missed long run and a miss day of cross-training.

I think in the end it's going to be worth it though because this mornings run nothing hurt. My knee didn't bother me at all.

My legs felt a little heavy from having so much time off, but other than that it was okay. I kept it at a 5.3 mph pace for 40 minutes

Not great, but not bad either.

Because I skipped my long run this weekend, I'm making a few adjustments to the training schedule. I'm doing last week's 9 miler this weekend and will eliminate the 4 miler that I was originally scheduled to do this weekend.

In other news, today's opening day and the Phillies are currently losing to the Nationals...that's just depressing. I'm hoping they can come back and pull out the win in their home opener.

  10. Hi Jess

    It is a funny thing about knees... they sure can cause a lot of problems. I have been very fortunate in that I haven't really had to take time off from running for injuries. But that being said, if I do have future problems it will probably be my left knee.

    You did the right thing by just taking it easy and moving your schedule around a bit. A couple lost miles now is much better than losing a few weeks.

    Best of luck with your weekend 9.
