Work went by pretty quickly yesterday and before I knew it I was back at my apartment. I put on my shorts, pants, running shoes and shirt, sweatshirt, and winter jacket! I added gloves and headed out the door to walk to the gym. I was debating whether to go and workout with the boys team but decided to workout on my own.
Warm-up on bike for ten minutes - 3.60miles
Run on treadmill for 4.4 miles (34:50)
Lifting: Bicepts, Abductors, Tricepts, Leg Press, Bench Press, Shoulders
Usually when I run on the treadmill I feel tightness in my legs so that is why I added the biking. But when I was biking I felt pain in the back of my knees - similar to what I have felt with my hamstring problems. I felt good for the first 3 miles but the last 1.4 was rough. I decided to do 4.4 because that is the distance of the Turkey Trot I am running on Thanksgiving. Abby, from my team, lives close to the race so she said she would run it with me!! I want to run that race at about a 7:45 minute/mile pace.
Another thing that has been bothering me is my toes. My middle toe (mostly on my left foot) has been giving me pain. Usually it hurts only in the mornings or when I am not wearing socks. The pain starts when I put pressure onto the toes by walking. There is no bruising or swelling so I am not sure why they hurt.
B-Rabbit picked me up after the workout and we went to the grocery store - Besides some food, I picked up the new issue of Runner's World to read. I left B-Rabbit a few hints that I would love a subscription for Christmas!!
Have a good day - remember to stay warm and stretch those muscles!!
