Pace: 9:47

Conditions:

  • 34° (feels like 24°)

Observations:

  • Around mile 3, my left knee experienced sharp inside pain. I've never had that happen.  I walked a short distance to my house and called it quits for the morning.
  • I am hoping that the pain is just a matter of switching shoes.
  • I am shy of my weekly mileage. so I need to run more this afternoon.
  • Tomorrow is tobe a rest day. I have a 10 mile race on Sunday. Fingers crossed that this is nothing!
