About individual runs
On Saturday (31/10): Trying to get back to my running lifestyle, very busy with other stuffs and couldn’t get back to running. The other isuue is after 2 months of training hard and multiple injuries I couldn’t complete my marathon training plan as desired and I am a bit discouraged about my previous general plan to make the sub three hours marathon. I have to make a new plan and maybe the key idea would be to first work on my speed for a couple of months and then work on long distance runs for the final 12 weeks which would lead to the race day. I had a little bit of pain in my right knee during my run today.
On Thursday (12/11): At 7.36 K, in order to be able to complete the 10K run, I significantly slowed it down due to a pain that I had in my left knee . I resumed my training after a couple of days of rest mainly because I was busy with my job. I hope I would able to get back to my regular training from now on.
On Friday (13/11): A bit of left knee pain at 4.16K
On Wednesday (18/11): Had a couple of days rest due to my backache. I planned to have a 10K run but after 7K I stopped due to a little pain that I felt in my back. I was running 4×1.8=7.2 but the satellite didn’t work properly and it shows 7.63K.
On Friday (20/11): It was freezing outside, 0 C !!!
