I had a really lovely run yesterday.
My endurance is so good now that when I go for a run I am tempted to go further than I should the first time out after having taken a break from the consistency of regular runs a couple times a week.
I am aware of this. So even thought I felt really good, with just a little tension in my right knee and calf (which I figured was just tightness so about half way through I stretched it out and kept going), as that was not bad and kinda went away after feeling warmed up, I didn't take a super short conditioning run , nor a long one but ran a more moderate 3-4 miles.
I felt great, like I could keep going. I stopped thinking "That's enough, I better just ease back in."
It was really lovely out- sunny and bright and warm yet it had snowed the day before so I was running the sidewalks where snow melted and the paved trail, not the ground which I prefer and find for longer runs (As less impact on knees and joints.)
I was a little surprised to feel tightness and soreness AFTER The run in my right knee.
Not too surprised
But unfortunately last night it became legit knee pain at points.
My knee is just REALLY Tight from the swelling.
I OVERDID IT!
In all the training I never overdid it.
