We travelled to my in-laws for Easter weekend and since they don't have a treadmill, I ran outside. I was nervous about my knee so I made sure to try to run on the opposite side of the road and keep a really slow and steady pace. My average pace ended up being 9:34 on a relatively flat course.
My knee seemed to hurt the worst on each uphill climb I encountered, but wasn't too bad going down, so maybe I'll survive the SL half. I'm really discouraged about my knee. I am still hoping for a sub 2 hour time and hope I can pull it off.
I found out that my grandpa passed away this morning. He was almost 90 years old and has had it pretty rough the past few years, so it's kind of a bittersweet thing. My parents are flying in from Virginia for the funeral. It will be SO great to see them. I haven't seen them in over a year! I hope with everything going on later this week and this weekend with the funeral that I will be able to find the time to get my miles in. Wish me luck!
