Over the past month, my knee has been fine - no pain at all - and I've been working myself back into shape. I'm getting there, but not really in good shape yet.
Week of Mar 6~12
6 runs of 50-60 mins., 50km, Wednesday night 1000s were about 4:25.
Week of Mar 13~19
5 runs with one 80 mins., 44km, wed 6 1000s aver abt. 4:20
Good 8k tempo run with HS team on Monday - 5 hilly loops, had to work to stay with top girls the last 2.
Week of Mar 20~26
6 runs of 60,70,80 mins., 60km, wed 1000s in 4:20
Another Monday tempo run, as above.
Week of Mar 27~Apr 2
6 runs of abt 60 and one 80 min, 64km, 5k time trial on wed. in 21:46.
Happy enough with the time trial, since I had been doing 4:20 1000s but averaged the 5k in 4:21.
Then did a 17k run on Sunday at about 5:50/k (usual pace is over 6:00), with no soreness or ill effects.
Hoping to be in good enough shape to run the 10k race on the 29th in a time that won't be embarrassing.
