10 miles - 9:10 avg (2:27 negative split!) - bluff trail from jensen park north out and back. was nice to run here again, it's been awhile. so i went out the first 5 miles pretty slow since this is the longest i've run in several months and i had intended to run a negative split for the last 5 if i felt up to it. with two and a half miles to go i was on pace to maybe get a 1 minute or so negative split when a runner coming towards me turned around before we crossed and was now heading the same direction as me. a very fit looking woman, pushing a stroller...well, i couldn't catch her! i got close a couple of times but then she would pull away. finally with about a mile left i was able to pass her and i thanked her for kicking my butt. my last mile was the fastest at 8:13.

the knee bugged a little throughout the run but i've developed a stride which seems to alleviate some of the impact of the left knee.

mostly sunny, upper 40's

3 miles - owens/easy st

noon - i cut my run short because i had accidentally packed the altra torins which is a zero drop shoe and the shoe i was wearing when my knee injury occured and i haven't used them since. so i don't know if it was the shoe or not but my knee was getting pretty sore within the first mile and i decided to just run three today and hopefully any pain from todays run is just my knee getting stronger

noon. a combination of work responsibilities and a desire to keep strengthening my knee without injury has netted three treadmill runs in a row. March is going well for me running wise (ie; consistency, no injury), but April will be the real test as i'll be increasing my mileage and doing a much higher percentage of my runs on the road.
