10 easy on the Broadway loop. The knee felt fine today, seems the ice is working.

10 easy around Connelly and onto the Urb. Beautiful day, but otherwise uneventful.

10 easy, ran down to Cornwall park and did a bunch of loops around. Sprinted the hill each time around for a little extra work. Another beautiful, sunny day.

10 easy around Padden. I'm really enjoying just doing easy mileage while I get my miles back up. It's relaxing, my legs aren't fatigued, and I'm thoroughly enjoying the clear days we've been having. Very peaceful around Padden tonight as twilight was settling in.

Did abs and pushups yesterday. I need to be more consistent with this.

This is starting to sound redundant. 10 easy down Connelly and out to the Urb. Knee started acting up around 7 miles, still no pain, just a sensation of friction. 73 min total.

Meh. My knee got tight after 2 miles, so I quit the run early. Think I need to figure this out before going to crazy on miles.

Easy 5 at about 8:00 pace around Padden. Knee is still tight, I took yesterday off to rest it. New shoes should be coming in soon.

Not the week I wanted, but my knee isn't bothering me today, hopefully I'm clear of this one. New shoes today.
