Today's run - longest in a long LONG time

Saturday, July 06, 2013

Today was supposed to be my long run of the week. I say supposed to because I didn't finish.

It's not because I couldn't. My heart rate was good. My breathing was good. I could have easily pushed through the last 20minutes if that was all there was to it.

My shoes did me in. I started noticing my right knee would hurt a little every time I started to run. I was running with Lulu, so we need to stop for her pee breaks, and for water at half way, etc. Well, after trying to start again after one of Lulu's pee breaks, the pain was bad. And it didn't go away after a few steps.

That was it for me. We stopped running and called home for a ride. I don't do pain. I wasn't going to walk on that sore knee either.

My knee twinged during the last two runs. Just for an instant, then it was gone. I thought about switching my shoes out, but forgot. Well, I won't forget today.

I'm just hoping I stopped soon enough to be able to do my long run tomorrow morning. Time will tell.
