You cannot always believe what I say. Yesterday, I was an old man with a wimpy left knee. At some point last night, early this morning, my knee actually began to feel great. I had literally no pain, no restriction in my range of motion, and no weakness. Consequently, I had to get in a run today right? It's beautiful out again, sunny and low 80's.
I did keep it to 4 miles though and I offset my run with a set of 10 burpees after each mile. I felt strong so I ran the miles in about 7:15/mile pace, did the burpees, then back at it, repeat.
Overall, I got a great workout in a short amount of time. It took about a total of 34 minutes including the exercise time. If you don't have the mileage worked out, simply do 10 burpees every 10 minutes on your run.
Good luck, I'm going to ice my knee just in case!
P.S. a reader and good friend, Mike M. likes to carry a bag of mulch on his workouts just to push himself even more! Way to work Mike!
