Today was scheduled to be an easy day, 4 miles with some short pickups to avoid traffic. Easy runs are so much fun. Today I ran an out and back along the Columbia River. And it was windy and COLD. But it was beautiful. I wish I had brought my camera!
7:46 (lots of time spent waiting on traffic on my way to the river)
8:13 (even more time spent waiting on traffic on the way back)
Those stretches Mark showed me are like anti-voodoo. I didn't even feel my knee until mile 4 when I had to stop for traffic. This is the second time in a row that my knee didn't hurt more than it did on the previous run. I hope this trend continues as I gradually add miles.
