Running 31:16 [3] 3.1 mi (10:05 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 18

Running with Presto after lab! Easy-peasy run up the hill. My knee felt totally fine on the way up, but I probably should have either run/walked the way down or just not gone as far up the hill. There was a slight ache in my kneecap (oddly not a place that was hurting before, le sigh) on the way down. The pain continued for a bit after running, but subsided in the shower. Maybe I should wear tights (or capris) for a little while on cooler evenings? Presto was pleased to be out and about. It's been a long week... I am utterly failing at working a more reasonable number of hours.

Strength 5:00 [3]

Normal abs. These felt totally fine, so that was good. The soreness from Monday is still vaguely there, but at a more or less ignorable level at this point.

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching and then a hot pad on the knee at bedtime. Knee's feeling quite normal at this point.

Running 20:00 [3] 2.1 mi (9:31 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 18

Running with Sam and Presto after lab! With both of us recovering from knee things, this run was nice and easy. My knee felt totally fine on the way up, but I could feel it a tiny bit on the way down. In other news, my upper body is REALLY sore. I ceded the leash-holding duties to Sam, which was good because Presto was REALLY excited about deer tonight!

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching.

Strength 20:00 [3]

Flying trapeze! Carlie's visiting, so of course I headed over to the Circus Center to do some flying trapeze with her. I did one knee-hang just to prove to them that I do remember how to do all the things, and then mostly worked on my front-end straddle whip. I somehow managed to cramp both my hamstrings reaching back on the knee-hang right at the beginning, so I then spent the rest of the class trying to uncramp those. Doing one-handed take-offs was also hurting my left shoulder (I kind of hurt that arm when I fell on Saturday), so I mostly did two-handed take-offs. But I guess I can't expect to have everything go swimmingly in a kind of explosive sport that I do approximately once per year with no warm-up after frantically rushing around on BART to attempt to get there on time...

Anyway, aside from those issues, this class was awesome! I caught my straddle whip twice, which was super fun, and it was fun to watch Carlie catch her layout a few times!

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Stretching back home. I will be sore!

Carlie also did some quick strength and range of motion tests on my shoulders. (She's out here to measure the shoulder strength of circus people for a PT research project.) Turns out I have very average shoulder and grip strength, and above average range of motion. Also my two sides are astoundingly equal. Woohoo! I would have expected much worse. I guess pipetting is good for something :-).

Running 30:00 [3] 3.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 18

Running with Sam and Presto at Point Pinole! After the failed run yesterday, I thought it would probably be ok to run again today, since we didn't get very far yesterday. Running felt fine today, and I managed not to fall :-). Presto was a bit of a slowpoke today, but I think that may have been because (as we discovered when we got back from the park) he was extremely thirsty. Really nice day to get out and also really nice of my knee to behave!

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching.
