The good news about being so busy lately is that my knee if feeling much, much better.  Maybe life will calm down a bit now and I can get back into full training again with healthy legs.

I don't remember the last time I ran on a TM.  It was before my stress fracture, but it was cold and windy this morning, so I took my act to the gym.  I forgot how much I really like running on a TM.  TMs get a bad wrap.  

Anyways I set the TM at 1% incline for the full workout.

2 mile warm up.  My knee was feeling a bit tight and slightly painful.  I considered mailing in the run but then figured I give it a go.

6 x 1 mile at 6:18 (9.5) with 1/4 mile walk breaks.  My knee actually felt better at the faster pace.  6:18 should be about my half mp, but it felt a little more like 10K effort today.  Not bad for my first mile repeats in a while.  I felt good enough on repeat 6 that I considered going to 6:00 pace, but then decided to be smart and stick with the plan.  I finished strong with a lot left in the tank.  Hopefully my knee won't bother me tomorrow.

 Total run 9.5 miles

SpeedStar 4 Miles: 9.50
