The knee again...

As at 6pm tonight, my knee felt absolutely fine again.

When I left work at 4.30pm, it the knee felt stiff and was sore to touch.  By the time I'd stood up on the train home and then walked from the station back home, it was fine.

Done some stretches and rolled the quads on the foam roller then set off out for a slow 1 lap loop of the Plums cross country course.

 

It was very warm out there tonight. I wore a cap to keep the sun of my head but it was absolutely drenched by the time I got back. Now the good weather has dried out the course, its actually a lot harder to run. The tree roots are much more prominant and the ground is much more uneven.
Although a slow pace, it was a good work out. The knee felt fine throughout the run. 3 hours later as I write this, the knee is a little sore. Again, the main test will be how it feels tomorrow morning after 6-7 hours of inactivity.

With tonight's run, I passed another milestone. 500 miles for 2013...

500 miles not out...
