Yesterdays 3 miler should have been easy regardless, but I went with Suz which made it both more fun and a tad bit slower. I think that we came in around 10:20 mi/mile pace, which is breezy for me but challenging for her. In any case, it was a good time, and the fact that I can keep pounding on these knees for over 30 minutes in this new sneaks is a good sign I suppose.
Start Time: I can’t remember exactly, but I think around 5PM or so. Suz and I had a tough time getting out on this run, since we were both about half-motivated, but someone we combined our motivation instead of our lack and got out there.
Distance: 3 miles even.
Time: Around 31:00.
Route: Our favorite 3-mile local river loop.
Pre-Run: Light stretching, water, pre-run nap and a little snack about 90 minutes beforehand.
Post-Run: Stretching, more water, dinner.
I’m still hitting the Vitamin I + icing but so far my knees haven’t really flared up again. Probably in large part because I’ve kept the mileage down this week, but next week we’ll start tweaking it up again and see what happens. Today was a rest day, and we’ll hit the roads again tomorrow.
