Yesterday I did 15 laps on the track at a moderate pace. Took 34 minutes. My knee is acting up but since I gave myself enough time to heal (8 weeks), I am not entertaining that manure again. So I will be strapping a bandage as knee support but no retreat from my plans. Its time I asserted my mind over my matter. Lets go gad demit!
At any rate, I was up today at 5am and ran for 40 mins - about 6Kms. It was good to be on the road again - the early traffic, the cold air, smell of gasoline, the feeling of apartness, a sense of warrior ship, solitude and just the rugged earth made me feel like a runner again.
I will rest tomorrow and resume running on Thursday. This is my first week of running 4 times a week so I will be taking it easy. So far so good.
