Week of Dec 17 ~ 23
That was the theme, although it wasn't too much longer, or too much slower.
Extra rest day. Knee slightly sore...and it was raining.
1:00 - gym workout with elliptical 10' and 20'
3:00 - 16km. 4k x 4 (200m, easy 2:30 walk)
First time to run 4k at a time, phew! Took it easier at only about 5:50/k.
Knee slightly sore and left hamstring also slightly sore!
6:00 - 9k in Yoyogi Park at about 6:00/k pace. (walks after 2k)
7:30 - 6k - On the track for 600,800,1000,1200,1000,800,600.
Ran them all at about 4:45 pace. Not bad, considering my quads were pretty sore.
Cold, windy night.
1:00 - Gym workout and elliptical 8' x 2.
3:30 - 16k - 4k x 4 (200m, 2:30)
4:30 - 20k - 4k x 5 (200m, 300m, 300m, 200m)
Knee ok, but got very tired - legs got heavy.
By the way, I was thinking...I have been taking glucosamine (or that and chrondroitin) every day for...how many years? 15? And I STILL got a knee injury - in the meniscus/cartilage area. I don't think glucosamine has done me any good. Is it really worth taking this stuff?
