Catherine is pacing a group at the Halloween Half today, and that means an early start for her. I didn't want to wait until after her race to run, so I got an even earlier start and headed to the gym at about 5:00.
Basically, I just spent my time plodding along. I ran for about 70 minutes alternating between flat at about 9:00 and 6-12 percent grade at about 9:00-10:00. I ended by hiking for 20 minutes on a 21 percent grade. Nothing too demanding, but I think it was a good workout overall.
I did feel some twinges in my knee, enough to make me worry. I'm not sure if it's a sign that something's about to go wrong or if it's just me being paranoid. But it's been a long time since I've run consistently for so long without something going wrong. Sure, my mileage is low right now, but maybe I just get injured when I run regularly, no matter how far I'm running.
