|I set out for a 12:00 pace. I was a bit faster. I didn't check Garmin until the last mile, so I had no idea how fast I was going. I still couldn't get my breathing under control. It never felt comfortable. See, I thought I was rested, but my body said otherwise. Yep, when I got into the last mile, the outside of my right knee started to bother me. So I slowed down and began putting more pressure on my left leg. My left quad got one heck of a workout today. This bit of trouble tells me a few things. 1) I need to seriously cook something or at least attempt to make a smoothie. Yes, I've neglected my diet because I've just been too tired/lazy to plan a wholesome meal. 2) I need to get my sleep schedule together. I've been jacked up all week. And it doesn't help that the Australian Open started. A lot of the good matches are on at some ridiculous time since they're 14hrs ahead. I plan to watch Roger Federer tonight. Luckily, that match won't be in the wee hours of the morning. 3) I need to stop being lazy and do some yoga. 4) I need to start strength training again although I find it as fun as watching paint dry. 5) I should really get down to the local running store and find some shoes just for me and my issues.|
So I haven't even thought about making dinner. Well, I haven't eaten lunch yet, so it will be a minute before I'm doing the dinner thing. But I did do some yoga, and then some squats and lunges. The lunges didn't agree with me. And on that note, I should go make a smoothie.

Oddly enough, this is the most consistent run I've had. Weird. The knee issue slowed me down in the last mile, so I'm surprised it turned out the way it did.
