Remember my TRAINING UPDATE a couple of posts ago? Somewhere in that post I said I was excited about my 6 mile run...well, it sucked! I finished it but not without pain (or feeling like I wanted to barf). The worst decision I made that workout was to actually run 6 miles.
My knee hurt right from the beginning...but I continued to run. To prevent boredom, I switched from 6.0 to 6.1 mph every three minutes. That made the workout go by pretty fast. Fortunately, I never felt the shooting pain but I felt that weird semi-intense pressure. It was after the run that I really felt the pain. I even felt it into the next day. I skipped my easy 3 miler and went on a walk with my pups instead...we walked about 55 minutes. The knee hurt initially but went away after about 15 minutes. I decided to skip Hip Hop Fitness tonight to do something less intense so that my knee feels good for the Shamrock Run this Sunday!!!
