My knees are feeling much better. Still some soreness but not pain. This is a much more manageable scenario!
This morning I did a 4.30 mile run in 40 minutes. I tried to keep it nice and easy in the RPE 2-3 zone like my training plan suggested. It was really cold out but after about 10 minutes or so I warmed up and got a nice run in.
In the evening I went to the gym to hit the pool. The gym was crowded with all the resolutionists but the pool was empty! I worked on a bunch of drills from The Essential Triathlon Swimming DVD and then did a quick 400 yards of laps to re-enforce the drills. I am still pretty slow with my freestyle stroke but am getting much more comfortable in the water. Swimming does not feel as hard as it did a couple of weeks ago and I think the drills from the DVD are really helping.
Today is another double day. My run is scheduled for 40 minutes and the swim is scheduled for 30 minutes. I will probably do the run right after work and then eat some dinner and go swim later. I was going to run this morning but it is freezing cold out and I am a huge wimp!
