Running Longest

Did 12 miles today.  I sure hope I didn't over do it.  My knee started hurting around mile ten. I just kept thinking, "I can do this.  I'll have two weeks to recover."  I needed some confidence that I can really pull the half off in two weeks.  I signed up for the Knoxville Covenant Half Marathon.  It was the first one I did three years ago.  And although I've run 3x/week since then, I am older and seem to be slower too.
I sure hope I didn't damage anything with the knee.  Ice, ibuprofin, rest.....and then on April 2nd I'll be ready to tackle that half!  The best thing about it, is you finish in Neyland Stadium on the 50 yard line!
