Runlog 7-8-11Doubled my Distance Today!!!

Today was mid 70’s and low humidity and I was feeling really good, so I decided to try to do 2.0 miles this morning. Yes I know I am pushing it, but sometimes, you just gotta do what you gotta do :).  The course was my usual 3.0 mile run, so when I finished the 2.0, I still had a 1.0 mile walk left to do.
The run itself was uneventful which is what I wanted.  I ran down the hills without any issues and went up the small hills without any problems.  The comfort level was no different than I felt during my 1.0 mile runs and that discomfort is lessening each week. The last 1/2 mile of the run was tough, but that was only because of my poor conditioning.  The 1.o walk after the run was pain-free 🙂
My experiment to run double my distance today was successful.  I was pleasantly surprised that I did as well as I did and happy that I did it.  I even iced my knee afterwards, even though there wasn’t any swelling or anything as a precautionary thing.  Who knows maybe I am starting to smarten up a little.
