Day 216 - One Out of Two and iFitness Update

September 10, 2013           No weight this week.

I woke up at 7:30 am this morning ready to run. I had the same anticipation as on a race day for some reason. I quickly ate a little rice and drank some water, grabbed the dog and headed to the bottom of the hill. It was a very misty morning and a little cool. Compared to the recent heat and humidity, it was great out there. The Puppy was just a little spastic which resulted in more pulling than I like.

We made it to the turn around with a little time to spare and headed back. The Puppy pulled me most of the way home. I had to stop several times to get her to slow down. Towards the end of the run my left knee was acting up again. I don't know if it was wrestling with The Puppy or that maybe I'm just exceeding my maximum weight load.
I went home and had my recovery shake then relaxed. My knee feeling about 75%. I decided to recover until late afternoon where I planned to run gain.  As the day went on, my knee didn't improve until at 9:00 pm, I decided to not push it and rest the knee for a few more days. Disappointed I couldn't do both runs! Tomorrow, I have an hour and fifteen minute bike ride. if my knee feels more stable, I might run.

On a positive note, I had contacted Fitletic who make the iFitness Hydration Belt about the defective bottle nozzle issue I mentioned way back on Day 165. Without question or hesitation, they sent me two brand new bottles! That is some great customer service!

Getting to bed early again. Until tomorrow my friends.
