My whole objective for this run was to get out early and avoid the ever increasing heat.
It has been extremely hot and humid, especially by my normal early evening run. The longer I wait in the day to run my 5K, the hotter it gets and more miserable I feel.
My run was a “sweatfest”, my main objective was to find a route where it was mostly shaded in my neighborhood. By the time I got out there, it was already a “cool” 87 degrees and getting hotter. I did manage to find a route where the path was about 70% shaded.
Amazingly after two days of running with my old shoes (misplaced my new shoes), my knees started to hurt. I’m still amazed at how a little worn down rubber can make my knees hurt. After about two miles, I felt a jarring pain in my left knee that caused me great concern.
Luckily this run was on my new shoes, but it appears as though the damage has already been done. I’ll have to monitor this latest injury as I continue these last days. #339 5K
