I ran 8.6 KMs today! This is a huge first for me, an increase of almost a full kilometer. I'm working up to a 10K at the end of August, and am happy to be making progress.
Post-run, though, my knee began really aching - a reminder that I need to upgrade my tools. Specifically, I need to buy new runners - it's been about a year since my last pair (probably at least 3 months too long) and now I'm starting to feel the ache in response.
The pain didn't last, but it was really just a quick reminder that, though I like to think I can do just about anything, the right tools, the right support and the right mindset put together make all the difference.
