A blog post a day

I didn't know when I started my Augustathon exercise experiment that it would also mean I was going to blog (almost) every day, but it seems to be working out that way. I'm glad, though, because writing more regularly (even if it's just glorified diary entries like this) is something I want to do in life.

Yesterday's run was hard, and I'm not sure why. Usually after the first ten minutes, I get into a groove (see my previous post). But last night I just felt slow and awkward the first 20 minutes. My groove finally hit in the final ten, and I considered doing another 5-10 minutes just to enjoy it a bit more, but my knee had been sore earlier in the day and I didn't want to push my luck.

I think I made the right choice -- the knee is fine, so far, today (though it was sore on and off until I went to bed last night).

baby those joints! when it comes to running, it's better to prevent an injury than try to recover from one.

Excellent advice. Nothing to be gained by trying to out-macho myself!

(Almost typed out-nacho, which is an entirely different situation.)
