First and foremost... it is freakin' cold here. FREAKIN' COLD. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this sort of cold weather, I had to start my car today at noon and let it run for a while. Boy, she was not happy with me! It was -12 degrees, -42 below with the windchill... It was so cold that I would lose feeling in any skin that was exposed for more than 10 seconds! Well, the windchill has decreased to -34, but the temp has dropped to -15.
This afternoon, I was able to catch a treadmill for thirty minutes prior to my spin class. Unfortunately, once again, the lady using it before me "lost track of time" and left me with less than 30 minutes. Damnit. Oh well. My right knee was a little sore so I took it pretty slow and steady.
Thirty minutes after my run I was finally on the bike and ready to go. I wasn't enthusiastic about doing all that fancy crap, up down, side to side, etc.; I just wanted to cycle for 45 minutes and make the most of it. You should have seen the crazy old lady in our class. She was wearing some god-awful knee length stretch pants, and at one point she removed her tank top and all that was left was what looked like a training bra! It was rediculous. To top it off... she was wearing knee high black leather boots! I felt bad for her. I think she was completely clueless... either that or on crack!
I think I need to ice my knees this evening and do a lot of stretching. I may have neglected to do that after my "long" run Sunday, which may be causing some knee pain/issues.
