Scotiabank Calgary Marathon: training week ten

Another week of training done! Last week wasn't the greatest thanks to knee pain. I should have not been so stubborn and stopped running last week, but I'm way too stubborn. I'm taking this week off and going to physio tomorrow. Fingers crossed I am back up and running soon. It's only been two days of not running and I'm already feeling antsy.

 Tell me: how was your week of training/workouts?


  1. Oh no! I hope your knee gets better! What a pain! ;( have you seen a dr or anything?

  2. Solid week of training considering the knee pain! :) Rest is the best thing you can do. I know from experience how frustrating that can be, but in the long run it is better that you don't risk hurting it more. I hope it feels better soon!

  3. I hope you figure out what is going with your knee... I am glad you are seeing a physio. Hopefully it is something that will heal super fast as I know the last thing you need right now is an injury. :/

    My week of workouts was really good last week. I ran 3 times, went to body pump twice, tried a barre class (which ended up being too hard for me because a lot of it was done on you tip toes and that's really painful for me with my RA), did a different cardio/strength combo class that was awesome and went to a deep stretch yoga class!

  4. Hope you feel better ASAP! I haven't had a running injury since 2010 and that's when I really seriously started doing yoga so I totally credit my non-injuries to that because I've definitely put in some high mileage since then, especially last year! Maybe try adding in two at-home yoga workouts a week? Even just doing a 20-minute session from yoga download would probably help a lot! They have some good yoga sessions for runners on there.

  5. Knee pain seems to be all over the blogger world! I really hope you feel some relief soon.

  6. My week was good. Crossfit was really good - some tough WODS. Running was so-so :)
