At my age, working out isn't about how hard I can train, or how far and fast I go, but about what I can manage without injuring myself. My right knee is beginning to remind me that it doesn't like the mileage. It's still just an occasional ache, so it's just enough to remind me to be sure to do my body-pump workout. Planks, weights, leg lifts, lunges. Gotta keep the supports strong to save the knee. Last week's workouts on the treadmill felt odd. The deck seems to be a lot more springy than I remember, with a noticeable bow running up the middle. I need to investigate that. and add some lube. I haven't lubed the deck in months.
I rehydrated after the run with hot chocolate. The kettle is on the fritz, so I mixed it then burned it in the microwave. I didn't know you burn hot chocolate.
