So the last few runs I have done, when I get to six miles and beyond my knee starts to hurt.
I’m hoping this is a shoe issue, so yesterday I went out and bought a new pair of Saucony’s. Loved the old ones so much that i took them in to match with a new pair but ended up getting a different model with the same stability support. I love them! So cushy. Tomorrow I have an 11 miler, and I at least want to do ten. Today I”m going to spend some time stretching out my IBS area and hoping that this stretching and the new shoes will take care of the knee pain. it doesn’t last. as soon as I stop running, even if I stop and walk, the pain goes away. so I’m hoping it is nothing serious.
I have only about 11 weeks to the marathon and I am still at 8.5 miles as my longest run, so not a lot of time! I’m hoping my body remembers the last marathon in February and bounce back easily.
I am also going to signup for Avon’s two day walk event. The first day is a marathon at 26 miles and the second day is 13. Since that is the only event between the June rock and roll marathon in San Diego and Long Beach’s marathon I’m hoping that it keeps me in training mode.
