Feb 16; Feeling back to normal

I took Sunday off because I still didn’t feel well. Or maybe it was because I wanted to finish reading New Moon. I think I am over whatever bug it was I caught because my Tuesday workout felt much better.

My left knee is still acting up. Somehow I hurt it on stairs, but I’m not sure what I am doing. After awhile I feel better with no pain.

Running felt really good after running sick Saturday. I still watch TV, but getting better at looking down while watching. Also getting better at moving my hips, so head bob has reduced.

My swimming felt terrible. I’ve been reading about Total Immersion Swimming, and tried to implement some of the recommendations. The problem is I tried to do too much at one time. Next time focus on one aspect of the stroke.

  1. Hi Mark,
    I am glad that you are feeling better and that you had a nice run!! Did you finish the book?

  2. That is good advice for trying to change your technique for a lot of things- just concentrate on changing one thing at a time. Thanks!
