      I wish our outdoor pool at the gym was heated, 'cause it would have been so great to go for a little swim outside with the snow surrounding the pool, but it's not :-)

    great Mission Bay 3.1 mi 00:35 11:11 pace

    Got back to the car after biking Fiesta Island, transitioned, and ran out-and-back on Mission Bay. Felt my legs around mile 2. I love running off the bike, heh.

    great made up set 3000 yd

    great Cardiff Kook 40 mi 03:00 13.3mph pace

    great out and back taper run 6.6 mi 01:18 11:49 pace

      Yes, you should log those miles. I'm no bike fit expert, but is your toe or heel pointing in or out as you pedal? Something is putting stress on that knee that it doesn't like...just a thought.. : )
