I probably need better stretch routines for my knees, as they've been acting up lately. I actually ran every day this week except yesterday and they held up just fine prior to Today's run.
Within the first 200 meters, I could feel some serious discomfort in my right knee that prompted me to stop immediately and stretch it out. I thought about heading back but decided to keep going slowly instead. Another two stops down the road and it didn't bother me again during the course of my long-run. However, the fact that it had been a recurring theme over the last couple of weeks is a source of concern.
I'll be looking up some routines to strengthen my calves and glutes and hopefully make this a thing of the past.
Other than that it was a pretty decent run, with very little attention paid to the time. Am always grateful for the privilege to run and while I also intend to run several times next week (am on leave currently), I'd make sure to factor in alternate rest days.
