This run powered by GLEE
I had my first legit run of marathon training (since Wednesday's easy 3 miler was just to make sure that everything was still in working condition) of 6 miles. It was a chilly 50 degrees so I got to wear my favorite shorts and long sleeved combo.... I knew as soon as I put it on that Aron would be jealous.... ;) I tried to keep the pace easy, but it seemed that when I was running slower my knee felt funny. Like there was a ton of pressure directly under the knee cap as well as the area below the knee cap. When I stopped to stretch to see if it needed to pop it HURT instead. When I started running again it felt fine. Of course when I was done running it hurt again. Perhaps I just need to run everywhere to keep the pain at bay. I'll be chilling with an ice pack for the next couple of days to be on the safe side.
I did 6 miles in 58:41 for a pace of 9:47.
Of course after I logged my miles in my running log, I realized I was at 999.4 for the year. :p Perhaps I could've just gone that extra .6 because I guarantee that I'll forget I'm running my thousandth mile for the year when I set out on my long run Sunday. Hah.
