    great back at it - easy 3 miles 3 mi 00:28 09:20 pace

    No issues other than my growing waist. Not sure if I'll be running or cycling more in 2016, but I'll be finding some motivation and working toward it. It's been 2 years since I was f... read more

    I ran with my wife and she dug deeper than she ever has. (Well, outside of giving birth to two human beings.) It was her first marathon and she had a few great training runs including two perfect 2... read more

    great short 2-miler 2 mi

    Got a marathon Sunday! Running 10:30/11 pace with the wife. Fingers crossed my knee feels fine, weather isn't rainy as predicted, and the wife does great.

  8. RUN
    good easy longer run 10 mi 01:29 08:54 pace

    Kept it in the 9s mostly but my knee still feels that nagging thing. Just gotta get through a marathon next weekend! Should be fine running at my wife's 10:30 pace.

      Have you tried KT tape or something similar? I seem to recall you did.

      Sorry to hear your knee is still an issue, Justin. But, the slower pace should help in the marathon. Nice ten!

    good easy morning run 4 mi 00:35 08:37 pace

    I've been sick with some bug so I didn't run long this past weekend and skipped yesterday. 2 weeks til the marathon -- I'm just crawling into the finish.

  10. RUN
    alright easy short run 3.5 mi 00:30 08:34 pace

    Short and easy in the perfect early morning temps. Knee is feeling it though still no discomfort at all. Just going to ride this through to the marathon and then switch to cycling for a few months.

  11. RUN
    alright easy monday 4 4 mi 00:34 08:30 pace

    Took it easy last week to rest my knee which is feeling a little something going on. Runner's Knee I hear they call it. Never any pain but if something is brewing I don't want to endanger... read more

      Justin - if it is runner's knee, then it'll go away, eventually! When I was a fairly new runner, it seemed to be an indicator that I needed new shoes!

      If it's the PFPS pain below the knee cap, 2-3 rest days should take care of it. If it's annoying but can still run, I've found the Mueller Jumper's Knee band works well.

      If it's runner's knee, then moving the kneecap up and down and wobbling it a bit, and doing clamshell exercises, will fix it. If it's something else, they won't fix it. But rest always helps. Aspirin or ibuprofen are anti inflammatory, but go easy on it as you need inflammation to heal. However if it's arthritis, then aspirin and ibuprofen will help, as inflammation makes that worse! So you need to know just what's wrong and address it. No matter what, dialling it back will help.
