    Another awful day. It's hard to describe it without swearing. My mental health is below any standards, unfortunately it affects my physical health. Whole day I felt like a crap. Knee, head, lower back, everything hurts. It's interesting because I don't feel any soreness after yesterday's workout.

    Done today:

    ~8 weeks to 5k Day 47
    9min run
    1min walk
    00:20:09, 2.84km, 07'03"min/km, HR 146
    I took it really easy today. It was more light jog than run. Whole time I felt some light stinging pain in my knee. I've stretched a bit after my run. Luckily I've found the sweet spot in that knee and stretched it well.
    Well, it wasn't really enjoyable run, it was too slow to 'reset', whole time I had to pay attention on my form to not make it worse.

    I think that's all for today.
    Tomorrow is another day and I hope it'll be better.

    Good night/day bees!

      I hope you have a better day tomorrow! Have you tried Knee Saver? It could help.

        Thanks stella88
        I did Knee Workout pretty often back in the day. It really helped when I had pretty badly injured knee (after doing too much wall sits ).

          Hugs and hoping your next day is better...

              Happy thoughts to you, I-M!

              Positive thoughts like "tomorrow is another day" are helpful I think.

              And a belated congratulations on your 60 days, which must have passed while I was away.

              Have a celebratory Welsh sheep dance!

                      Another 'not enjoyable at all' day. Well, morning was fine, but afternoon and evening, as always, awful. When the whole family is at home it's always so loud, everybody complains, shout, it's a non-stop quarrel. I have enough of that s**t. I need to figure out how to disable my hearing and ignore all that stuff.

                      Done today:

                      ~4 Minute Warmup
                      It's better to be warmed up before stretching

                      ~30 Days of Strength Day 24: Stretching (LVL III)
                      I kinda liked it.

                      ~Top to Bottom Workout
                      I wanted to extend this stretching session a little bit.

                      I enjoyed my today's workout. This short while, when nobody bother me.

                      Good night/day bees!

                      Let's listen to some music:

                          Have you tried any meditation I-Matanjah? It can help with focus and letting things that bother you pass by - that's my main reason for doing it, to help deal with my anxiety.

                            Yeah PetiteSheWolf and all that negativity flows onto me. My dad is master of complaining, even if everything is alright he'll find a reason to complain.

                            Meditation works pretty good Colin (just like running) until I'll step out from my gym/bedroom (or until I'll came back from a run).

                              ~8 weeks to 5k Day 49
                              15min run
                              1min walk
                              2 sets
                              00:32:02, 5.20km, 06'08"min/km, HR 166
                              I really enjoyed it. I saw some roe-deers pretty close to me. How I love moments like this, unity with nature and stuff.
                              All that magic vanished when I came back home, back to reality.

                              ~1000 Push-Ups Challenge Day 26
                              1:30 plank

                              I decided to just don't care, I think it's the best idea.

                              Good night/day bees!

                                Well, you can't carry everybody else's problems on your shoulders. At best, you can try to be the voice of reason. If the people around you can listen, that's great. If they can't... well, at least, you tried and did the right thing. Sometimes there isn't much more you can do. And that's already quite a lot, come to think of it.
