Nice and easy early morning 6M run in chilly temps (13 degrees) but no wind. Just an easy day to rest for tomorrow's 10K race. Kind of cool about the race tomorrow, at least 8-10 of my coworkers are running it as well...should be fun (and the forecast is for a sunny but cold morning).
My wife is really bummed about her knees even though the doctor said there is not a problem, just something to be aware of for the future when her knees hurt. The "runner's knee" pain is getting better, but she thinks the structural issue will keep her from exercising (despite what the doc said) and getting back into running. She doesn't want to run if she has to have any pain. I told her that all runners experience some pain at least now and then and you pay attention to what it is telling you...and that if running is not something that she enjoys, she doesn't have to do it. She is a monster on the elliptical and in the weight room (she takes great pleasure in getting on a machine after a guy and adding weight to it!).
total time: 43:58 (Saucony T2 - 125 miles)
Short 3.8M run around the loops of Freeman Park. Paced my buddy through a 6:50ish first 2M in preparation for tomorrow's 10K race. Did last 1.8M at a 6:10ish pace. Stopped because my fingers were icicles (kinda underdress for the weather...shorts long sleeves, fleece vest and two pair of light cotton gloves in 22 degrees).
total time: 24:11 (Saucony T3 - 368 miles)
