Running: December 22 - 31

I'm a little behind catching up on the blog.  I began last week running fairly well, knee feeling stronger, and getting some distance and pace back. On the 26th, a twinge in the knee returned, which got a little worse as the week progressed.  I began my planned marathon training schedule on the 28th with a light cross-training day, which provided a little recovery time, and ran again on the 29th and 30th.  I decided to take an unscheduled rest day on the 31st to add to the scheduled January 1 rest day.  I'll try to get back on schedule on January 2nd.
  • Wednesday, December 30 - 3.0 miles, 28:59, 9.66 pace.
  • Tuesday, December 29 - 5.0 miles, 50:25, 10.08 pace.
  • Monday, December 28 - Began Marathon Training Schedule: Light cross-training.
  • Sunday, December 27 - 4.0 miles, 40:06, 10.03 pace.
  • Saturday, December 26 - 4.0 miles, 37:38, 9.41 pace.

Yes, into the marathon prep schedule now, I can't take any chances. Better to miss one workout in the early stages of reoccurrance than to let it get out of hand and have to get way behind on training.

Thanks for the continued encouragement!
