My pace isn’t really that all over the place, I just forget to turn off autopause. I personally hate autopause because it overestimates your ability. Not to mention Strava is TERRIBLE at measuring distance accurately, so I’ve switched to the Nike Run Club app. Until I can justify the cost of a new Garmin watch (my 7-year-old one can’t hold a charge through an entire run anymore).
Monday / Thursday
Friday after the cold snap
Tracking issues aside, I successfully ran 5x last week! It was a mix of before work, lunchtime (runch) and evening runs. Half Marathon training win! Also, runners knee win! I haven’t run 5x in one week since June 2014 (which is around the time my knee started to bother me). But my knee seems to be fine right now.
However, I didn’t do any strength workouts. So I don’t know long I can keep the knee happy with this. I want to keep the run 5x and yoga 2x and also work in some strength 3x, probably via the Nike Training Club app because my ClassPass membership is on hold (trying to save some funds). So that’s this week’s goal.
