Combined workout: Running and strength-training

New approach this one. Every thuesday and Thursday in the fourth quarter I'm running to the gym, executing my programme of strength-training and running back home again. The run is a light endurance-session, approximately 4,3 km and pretty levelled. The running went fine. I ran as planned, staying in the upper part of zone 2. However, I experienced severe problem with my right knee. On the way back home it was really painfull. I need to take measures before my next run on Thursday. They are ice, keeping the foot unstrained, changing running shoe on my next run and using some kne-support. The knee strongly affected my running performance.
The strength-session went fine. More load this time without pushing myself to much. Just adding more load as I log more and more sessions.
