6 Miles 43:23 7:14 average per mile
+10 minutes elliptical
Took past 2 days off completely as to try and get the knee
better. The rest didn't do much for improving the knee.
Still pretty sore but decided to give the treadmill a shot.
First mile it was hurting pretty good and almost stopped.
Decided to wait and see if it got better. It did get a
little less painful so I kept going. By mile 4 it felt
even better so I picked up the pace and finished hard.
I decided to run at 5% incline today for a couple reasons.
1 It would force me not to try to run too fast on it.
2. I would take shorter strides therefore less pounding
on the joints.
Saturday is a local 10k race. Not sure if I will race it
or not. I really want to but will have to wait and see.
It's the 4th and final race of the Winter Series and I
have done the other 3 so would like to finish it off.
Plus I'm in first place in my age group and if I don't
run I'm out of the standings.
