5min warmupOn the upside, I upped my overall jogging speed. I'm feeling tired, but not broken. I didn't get my mood boost from exercising this morning that I've become accustomed to. That may have had more to do with the morning's prelude and the doom & gloom news reporting in the gym than anything else. It sucks when there are TVs on everywhere you look and the stories make you want to cry. Mark that as a pro for running outside. No downer newscasts.

However, workout 2 is complete and I'm happy with the progress I'm making. I really think I might be able to finish this 5K without feeling like my legs are going to fall off. I look forward to checking in with the doc and making sure I'm not far off base with my knee. I also have 3 personal training sessions to setup once I get more instruction from my doc. Lots of good stuff coming up.
So today is just a hard day. More of it is being put behind me as I write this. I'll feel better. But for now, I'm going to pout a little as I go fill up my water cup. Just to languish in the mood before moving on to greener pastures.
