Post-Run Report: February 6, 2017

This was a hard fought 3.78 miles. I experienced a bit of pain in my right leg, just below the knee and general muscle discomfort. I think I’d been running too fast too soon, and I overdid it a little last week. Even two days off didn’t make the discomfort go away, and yet I still ran. I was actually rather okay until I hit about the 2nd mile when the pain below the right knee started. But then, within about half a mile, it went away. The rest of the run was good, and I felt like I was making good time. Only a review of the splits showed that it was actually my slowest run in weeks. Oh well. I got my 80 push ups in which felt great, and the run itself was pretty decent.

I will take tomorrow off again as is my plan, and I will likely have a light run on Wednesday. Hopefully, the muscle discomfort will fade and I can get back to running harder and faster.
