So it seem that once again my quads are the culprit for the knee pain. I have been kneading my quads just as Bob recommended a few times a day. It amazes me how a massage therapist can do this all day long when only after a few minutes I feel like whining. I can however, feel some trigger points that could be the cause of my problem. Should have my Tiger Tail within the next few days. I will continue to stretch is be smart with my workouts and mileage. Keeping focused on the big goal...50 miles... yikes!
I ended up taking Sunday as a rest day. Thought it would be a good idea. Yesterday I tackled the elliptical for a 70 minute session. Awesome! Today I ran my scheduled 4 miles on the treadmill. My goal is to find some love for this piece of machine since it is SO mother hot outside. It is just too much. Heat index was 106 degrees today. Goodness!! That does not even account for the humidity!!
One thing I have realized(again) is that I never appreciate the running so much until it is threatened. Now all I want is to run. Good feelings all around.
Stay cool my friends!
