4.74 KM (1.32 KM Speed Walk) + Short Run (3.42 KM)

My knee has been bothering me since NYE, so I took it easy last week after my run. I felt like running, but my knee just didn’t feel up to it. I spent most of the week with it wrapped up. Thankfully, it’s hurting a lot less and feeling less sore. It wasn’t really hurting much, but it was constant. This is basically why I stopped running in 2009. The same knee was acting up.

5.85 KM (1.76 KM Speed Walk) + Short Run (4.09 KM)

I didn’t really feel it last night, so I just went for a 2.5km speed walk with Spike and then turned in. Tonight, I didn’t feel it either, but I still went out to run. My pace is somewhat disappointing, at 8:02 min/km, down from 7:14 min/km from last week, but ultimately, I just was happy that I was able to finish the run. I knew I was slower than before, but I noticed that my right knee was aching slightly.

6.03 KM (1.89 KM Speed Walk) + Short Run (4.14 KM)

I was somewhat tired during the day because I had gotten just about 4 hours of sleep last night. A power nap and an espresso sorted me out for the rest of the day. When it came down to run, I decided that I needed to run a bit longer and further than previously, which I did.

5.05 KM (2.05 KM Speed Walk) + Short Run (3 KM)

I was pretty tired today, mostly because of the run last night and the fact that I went to bed somewhat later than usual. I didn’t really feel like going for a run, but one way or the other, I need to walk Spike, so it’s basically the perfect opportunity to go out for a run right after.

4.69 KM (1.69 KM Speed Walk) + Short Run (3 KM)

Since I went out on Friday and Saturday, I didn’t get much exercise, though I walked and danced quite a bit. While I went to bed at 6AM two days in a row, I went to bed at 8PM last night and got up at 6:30AM. Even with this long amount of sleep, I was still a bit tired during the day. I usually catch up on sleep on the weekend, but when you go to bed so late, it’s hard to sleep the whole day away, especially when you’ve got work to get done.

4.73 KM (1.73 KM Speed Walk) + Short Run (3 KM)

It’s been raining quite a bit and the muscle pain from the last two runs has started to show. While it isn’t excruciating, it’s still always present and I was sore most of the day. Lucky for me, I managed to get 11 hours sleep last night, so that probably helped me recover. I rarely get that much sleep during the work week, but training makes you really tired, so I go to bed earlier.

4.83 KM Speed Walk (1.77 KM) + Short Run (3.06KM)

I almost left the door a lot earlier, but I finished working at around 9PM and was slightly hungry, so I had a bit to eat. I hadn’t eaten since lunch, but I kept it light enough. Still, next time it would probably be best to run first and then eat. Also I have found that running after speed walking the dog is optimal, as I just have to drop the dog off, peel off a layer and grab a water bottle then head back out again.

5.16 KM Speed Walk (1.5 KM) + Short Run (3.66KM) + Weight Training

My blister finally healed over completely and now was the time when I could start training again. It’s been about 4 months since my last run, but for the last 2 weeks, I have been speed walking Spike around the park to get ready to run (it’s about 1.5km). It’s fast enough to make me sweat and wear my running gear. Today I started with some weight training. I did about 120 per arm, 100 sit-ups, and then took Spike out for a long walk, at least for him.

5.1 KM Short Run

I didn’t really feel it last night, as my knee was acting up so I stayed home. Today, I went for a run, but had some trouble with my right quadriceps toward the end of the training. As such, my pace was slower and I had to take more breaks. It took me 48 minutes flat to cover this distance. My pace was 9:24/km.

5.37 KM Short Run

I took two days off from running, mainly because I was a bit sore and initially wanted to go for a long-ish run on Sunday. My left Achilles heel was hurting a bit on Saturday, so I took it easy over the weekend. I did feel somewhat rested. I could still feel a bit of soreness in my thighs, but it was nothing compared to how it felt like on Friday night, after my run.
