Good run tonight!

Good run tonight!

The knee was finally feeling better tonight and so I hit the pavement. I tried some pace work at the beginning (realizing that I wouldn't be able to maintain it) and ran 7.5 minutes per km for about the first 1.6km. That totally kicked my arse, but I still ran for the whole 30 minutes. That said, I think I might start some pace work after my 5k this Saturday. In the meantime, I will take it easier. Take a load of this picture! Anyone else suddenly want lobster?

Well done and glad the knee behaved. My face goes that colour too AND I've got a top that colour. Match made in heaven.

I was even more red than usual this time thanks to the pace work. I had to start laughing. I'm usually flushed, but this (and the matching top) was perfect.

Glad that the knee is holding up. You looked pretty chuffed - pink face just shows you've been working hard!

Matches your top! Ha

At the start of my run my pace is about 7.3 min km but can't maintain it over 5k and finishes at 8.2 min km, I suppose that's natural and not bad, glad the knees better.. Im very good with massage, my wife says I have healing hands! lol😁

The happy smile was the first thing I noticed, not the colour of your face! Well done you, and well done knee.
