Training Log - Wednesday, March 24, 2010 (Part 1)

Lovely, now I wake up 30 minutes before I even need to get up. So be it, it was 4:30 AM and I brewed my first cup of Joe. I was going to meet some of the usual suspects at their office at 5:30 AM. Turns out, only James showed. Mike has a game later tonight and Richard was still nursing that nasty ankle injury from the desert race. We initially planned to do ten miles, but then I remembered that I would have to run with the youth soccer team I am coaching in the PM as well. So we settled for what I would call a Research Park Midtowne Out & Back Loop for a total of 8 miles. The weather was on the chilly side but tolerable. I again struggled with my right knee. It continues to hurt until about one mile into my runs and it starts hurting again after I complete my runs. I really hope this is going to go away. I am looking forward to the McKay Hollow Madness Trail Half Marathon this weekend and I would love to not deal with pain during that race. I will be doing that race alone as everyone else was late signing up and the race had already filled all 200 slots. Huntsville has quite the running community these days. Every race has had a significant growth over the last year. Our running crew also signed up for the Laurel Valley White Water Run today, which takes place in South Carolina in August and should be a whole lotta fun. If you've never heard of it, goggle it. It's definitely worth a look.
