Week of June 3 ~ 9
100.2km / 62 mi.
My knee is not getting better, and in fact is getting worse. The weird thing is, it hurts most when I get up after sitting for a while. Then it "loosens up" and is not bad. While running it is only slightly sore, and when running fast, not at all. So go figure!
When I go to Thailand to visit my daughter in July, I am going to get an MRI and a consultation with a sports doctor. Why Thailand? Good hospitals, cheaper than Japan, English speaking.
All long/easy days are slow aerobic (HAF) runs - 4 per week.
Trying hard to lose weight! Counting calories in.
Weight measured right after getting up, before breakfast, whatever time that is.
Rest - Back from onsen (hot spring) trip.
