I slept really well last night. That makes two nights in a row. Maybe it’s the cool weather, or maybe it’s because I’ve started drinking my antioxidant cocktail again. In any case, the last two nights have been out like a log dream filled sleep nights and that’s been great.
I woke up feeling a little tightness in the knee, but it wasn’t too bad. I was walking around fine. So, I decided to give my planned 5 easy miles on the treadmill a try. Things started off quite well. No tightness at all trhrough the first 3 miles. After three, it started to tighten up a little but nothing I would consider to be pain. Just kind of an annoying feeling that something’s not right. I finished off my 5 miles then walked it off. I did some upper body strength training and threw in 3 core exercises. These actually served to stretch things out a bit in the gluteal region. I felt pretty good the rest of the day.
So, if if I continue feeling as good as I do now, then I’m going to go ahead with my speed interval workout tomorrow. It’s going to be cold, but I think I’m going to don the tights and do it at the park. There are 800 m intervals involved and I don’t want to do those on the treadmill. The cold is the lesser of the two evils in the case.
