The beginning of week 4 was a potential turning point. On the first workout of the week I was winded and my left knee hurt. This was easily a point where that little voice in my head was saying “What are you doing to yourself” “I told you this would happen” “Stop this nonsense”, but I powered through.
I spoke to some friends and started taking a supplement for my joints, Glucosamine and Chondroitin. The guy at GNC also recommended Fish Oil which I already take on and off. Guess I should make it more on.
The other two workouts were spectacular in fact I ended up extending both my other indoor and outdoor runs beyond the prescribed in the app. I felt really good after both of those those. My outdoor run on Saturday marks the half way point to running a 5K.
It feels really great to have invested a month in this and to have seen the results as quickly as I have. It hasn’t all been easy, there were a few hills both physically and metaphorically that I could have given up on but I didn’t.
