So, my workout schedule was impacted by a few things.

I was booked in 6 shows throughout the month. I don’t like working out (other than yoga) during the day before a show because I don’t want to tire myself out and also don’t want to risk doing anything that would make wearing heels difficult and/or bother my knee.

Speaking of my knee, it’s started to bother me again  🙁  Similar as the last time, when I was diagnosed with runners knee and wound up in PT – sharp(ish) pain while running, usually when stopping and restarting (like at a stoplight), and tenderness in the same knee when walking down stairs after a run.  I shouldn’t be surprised though, in the weeks leading up to the knee pain coming back, I wasn’t doing as much strength training or yoga as usual. Luckily, the pain is very minimal, only happens during a run, and with decreased mileage and increased strength training, seems to be lessening.

And, uh, it’s cold. It’s not just my knee keeping me from running. I’m chickening out with this weather.

How are you handling the colder temps? (And shorter days.)
