Another 5k was ran tonight. I ran it in 30:02. Not too bad being the day after a long run. Feeling good afterwards, I headed to my bi-weekly spin class. Loved it! They really know how to work you. I know that if I tried to do this class sans instructor, I wouldn't have nearly as much sweat on the ground. I think I prefer working on intervals (sprinting hard for a short time and releasing the gear) in class versus sprints (sprinting for a short time a pacing the gear). Our instructor had us working in one gear (for 1/2 the class). When a spin instructor has their class working in one gear, you know it's gong to be hard. He had us taking only 15 second breaks between each interval and 1:30 break between each sprint. It was definitely a tough class, but I loved every minute!
When I got home, I continued icing my knee. No problems or pain or anything, I just don't want anything to happen. Just prevention, not curing.
Paradice was so kind to send me a knee ice pack. I love this ice pack!! It's one of the best things that has ever been invented. It's soft and cushy and has beads inside. The beads don't melt so there is no wetness left behind. The best thing, I can walk around while icing. It stays on my knee while I do the things I have to do that night. Tonight I am blogging and making dinner while icing. This saved me 1/2 hour tonight. I love it when things make my life easier.
