Week of March 10th - 16th, 2014

6mi/39min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Knee felt really good.  Did circuits at school.

2mi/13min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Nice 50 degree day!  I lifted weights and played hoops at the Y after school because I had a workshop in Keene.  I ran in the late afternoon but it was still 50F at 5:00 when I headed out. 

1mi/8min + Circuits at Fit Club.  Body sore and tired from hoops and the hard lifting session yesterday.

4mi/29min in Pisgah with Griffin.  It was cold and windy.  There was 1" of fresh snow on the trails, just enough to make everything look fresh and pretty.  Good yoga session after.

12mi/1:30 on the Grafton, VT power lines with Ferenc and the girls.  They had 3 or 4" of snow up there and made the going slow and slippery.  After an hour the slipping really started bugging my knee which had been feeling great all week.  This will probably end up setting me back a little bit.  I need to just keep doing short runs and slowly adding a mile or two.  It was a fun run though and a good test for the knee.

4mi/27min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Nice and warm today, 46 degrees.  The snowmobile trails were very icy but my micro spikes worked like a charm.  Got swole in the morning, pumping the weights.  Did about 50 pull-ups at night with Sontag and Boj. 

6mi/40min in Pisgah with Griffin.  Beautiful sunny day, 28 degrees.  The trails conditions are ideal for micro spikes right now.  Knee felt good.

Total for the week:
I'm happy that I'm able to tolerate more mileage and my knee is handling it.  The 12 miler on Friday aggravated it, but it didn't stay inflamed.  I did a good couple lifting days and circuit days.  I've been happy that I'm doing yoga every time after my runs (just like the old days).  I got away from doing that consistently for about a year.  Next week, I might go down to Rhody for the Burlingame 10mi trail race.


  1. Hope to see you down here this weekend. Get that knee better!

  2. If you are feeling up to it, it would be awesome to have you and Jen at the race on Saturday. Good chance to run on some clear and dry trails.
