Run 2:02:00 [3] 14.25 mi (8:34 / mi)
slept:8.5 weight:162lbs shoes: Asics gel ds trainer 21

Long run
Ran with Chris and Matt from the east end towards Chippewa and back towards central.

Left inside knee tight as soon as I started running. I was hoping it would loosen up but after 75 min it still hurt. I left the group to run back and noticed my stride changed right away. They were running just over 9 min miles. As soon as I picked up the pace to run alone the knee felt a lot better. I stopped and stretched and this helped even more.

I gradually picked up the pace the last 30 minutes. Left knee just a little stiff after. I will have to roll, stretch and monitor.

20 min wu, 24 min tempo, 16 min cd

Just Kip and I this morning battling wind and snow at Boulevard. Legs were feeling strong today, probably because I have not done a strength workout this week. Tried to keep up to Kip as long as possible but faded 8 minutes in. I need to focus more through the middle of the set as I was able to pick up the pace again for the last 5 minutes or so.

I found running with the wind and downhill my legs wanted to turn over as fast as possible with long strides. It was Challenging to change the rhythm at sudden corners into the wind.

Right ankle getting stronger. It is amazing how fast the strength is returning.

Left knee on inside sore when I got out of pool from playing with Riley. Cold water made everything tight. A good roll and it was back to normal and stretch and it was back to normal. I have not felt this tightness on the inside of my knee since before Christmas.
