Pain in my right knee for most of the workout and definitely after the workout. Talked to Mike since he came from a cycling background. I told him that the knee pain only started once I got back on my bike regularly. He said that it is possible that my saddle may be too low. He said that my knee should only be slightly bent. Not straight and fully extended, either. I will have to check on this and make an adjustment if necessary.
Cliche: Pain is temporary. Pride is forever. Gotta remember this when my legs feel heavy, there's a sidesticker making it hard to breath, my head feels like it is going to pop, and my arms are tingling. I gave up on my last repeat tonight. I was hurting, but was there more? There's always more. Always. Unless you're on the floor.
Don't let the King be the Winner! I went to Burger King an hour post workout. I ordered and devoured
a BK Double Stacker (I love the sauce they use),
small french fries,
and the clincher... a BK Fish sandwich.
Did I really need the fish sandwich, too? The King made me do it. I will be stronger next time. Approximately 1900 calories. BMI just went up 1pt. I can feel it. This is gonna need some extra laps on the next workout.
And the workout...
3 laps around the track on my own (.75 mile)
1 mile loop around the neighborhood
Stretching and then 4 x 100 striders
6 x 800 repeats @ 4-7 seconds faster than 5k goal pace (3:20-3:25)
I ran 3:19, 3:20, 3:19, 3:26 (missed by 1 second), 3:21, 3:44 (refer to 2nd paragraph above ^ beginning with Cliche.)
Did some breathing exercises and slow stretching at home a few hours after the workout.
