After my aborted 9 on Tuesday, didn't even make it 2 miles before my knee started screaming, I tried again today.
It didn't go as well as I'd hoped. I didn't get 9. I didn't get 6.2. I got 4. But that's better than nothing.
The first 2 miles gave me lots of hope. They were nice and easy (12:45ish). I was running on concrete, which may have been a contributing factor to my knee pain. The 3rd mile was do able (~13:20). Still kept up a pretty good pace and ran the entire distance. The last mile was a 3:1 run walk with some stretching thrown in, to spice up the work out, you know.
I'm stretching and doing some strength exercises. Here's to hoping I can get to the start line of the Southern California 1/2!
