The plan for this morning was the long run. I thought maybe I could hit the gym at the right time and have everything line up in my day accordingly.
However, while lying in bed last night I had a thought. Thinking is probably dangerous both in and out of the pool. But I did it anyway.
I realized that though I was super slow at the air squats -which happened at crosscamp on Friday- and I was super terrified to hurt my knee again, I somehow managed to make it through 192 without injury. So maybe -just maybe- I could strengthen my knee so I can stop babying it. I decided this morning to brave the elliptical downstairs.
Bonuses to using the elliptical rather then going to the gym:
50 minutes later with sore arms and legs (and knowing who the killer was) I was finally done. And my knee was good. I just kept it slow and steady.
I am looking forward to clear pavement and fresh air.
BTW an update to the crosscamp workout on Friday (and partially so I don’t forget how much I hated it) it was:
200 kettlebell swings
192 air squats (didn’t make it to 200)
And 100 woodchopper sit-ups
