So I took a mini break to give my knee a rest. I ran today 2 miles to test the waters. We will see. I am not going to get too stressed about it though. I feel fairly confident that it isn’t anything serious. Will it keep me from continuing my training? It may. So be it.
Anyways, another reason I love running is because it keeps me in touch with the seasons and nature in general. The light has shifted. The sun is sharper and brighter and I felt like I was running in an Edward Hopper landscape.
It is 62 degrees here today! I got to wear shorts today for my run. I didn’t run yesterday because my knee was killing me walking downstairs. I am not one that really gets much knee pain so I am not sure what to think about it. I had to get outside though today though and so did Gus. We hit one of the few options we have for off leash trail routes and ran 3.25 miles. I really do love trail runs, my fav for sure. Knee didn’t seem to bother me. Time will tell. Oh Gus Gus, such a happy dog today.Look how dry it is already, yikes.
Today was a 8 miler. I have been running since my last entry, don’t you worry. There just wasn’t much to say about those runs. Like there isn’t much to say about today’s run other than the blue sky is sure pretty!
Today was a hill workout day. Overall, 4.25 miles ran, 2.5 or so was spent running uphill in 1/4 miles chunks. Bleh, not my favorite way to spend the miles but I will hopefully be thankful I put in the effort. Running up hill obviously is harder but really, I think the killer is running downhill for long stretches at a time. I am anticipating a lot of downhill stretches during the race I am doing. No pictures, all business today.
