Weekly Report: Oct. 1 - Oct. 7
After our 8-mile long run Sunday my knees have been a little twinge-y. They ached in the last few miles of that run, and then this morning we did 2.6 and they ached during that, too. It's not my IT band; the ache is central to the knee cap and a bit low. I need to look up some stretches and get back to the gym - I only went once last week.
Next week we're taking a break from an official long run to run our first 10k. Very excited! I'm feeling really confident about November's Half.
Also on the wish list: a good Turkey Trot near home (post-Half) to run with my sister.
Finally, a shout-out is due for SF and DC, two friends of mine who ran (respectively) their first full marathon and their second Half. SF completed her marathon is just over 5 hours, which is super impressive to me, and DC killed her Half PR by 8 minutes! Excellent work, ladies!
