so about 30 minutes after my PM 10 the left knee started to get sorer(?) and sorer. nothing worse than last friday night, but about on par. its mild enough that i could run on it, but i think it’ll get worse. i barely feel it after waking up which is good. i didn’t feel it at all after my AM 5, so my two takeaways are 1.) it needs a few more days to fully recover(hopefully just that since 2 days off nearly did the trick) and 2.) i’ll probably need to ramp training back up a bit slower. obviously i’m frustrated, this isn’t the most inopportune time but with about 12 weeks until the 5k i was planning on peaking for, it’s not great. i’ll take today completely off, cross train and do some upper body lifting thursday and friday and try again on saturday or sunday.

Dude, tough news, but you're smart to be cautious. I wish I could tell myself at a younger age to take that approach. You're doing a great job.
