Eat my dust.


treadmill | 1% incline |6 miles @ 6.2mph (9:49 min/mile) | ~ 60:00

Good run except the treadmill kept wonking out when I'd put it on pause to stretch between miles. Left knee hurt a bit after mile 4, just when my heel would strike the floor. Icing both knees and buying some Glucosamine tomorrow. Left hamstring was tight from yesterdays weights but I ran through it and stretched thoroughly afterwards. Endurance wise, great run, could've done more. I've got my signature caked on so-I-can't-move-my-face-muscles sweat happening. Gross, maybe. But it's the sign of a good, long run. I haven't ran that distance since grade 12, but I felt like doing it today. A combination of stress and procrastination. Probably shouldn't have, since I was spinning on Sat and lifted legs on Sun. So kids, don't try this at home.

I'm taking the next couple of days off to let my knees recover, just in case.

Does Glucosamine work? I always thought it was one of those "steal your money" deals. Lemme know...cause if this knee of mine keeps hurting, I might have to invest.

Well, if you're not sure of why your knee is hurting, I wouldn't use it. I'm going to use it because I know my injury is cartilage related. And yes, it has been shown to have a significant effect on cartilage repair.

I don't think your injury is too serious though, it's only been bothering you for a few days. I'd just wait that out.

Yeah you're's feeling a bit better today anyway.
Holy run, btw!
