Fourteen-Mile Fantasy

After the temporary interruption last week, the long run schedule resumed with a 2 hour 15 minute run. Little by little the runs have been getting longer, and now I was able to get to the beach park below Hawaii Loa Ridge on Kalanianaole Highway before turning around. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a complete time, but I think I did about 10 minute miles or a little less.

That left knee of mine started aching a little with about a mile to go. The funny thing now is that the pain is not the kind of pain you get when you sprain an ankle, where it comes from the muscle or joint. It's on the inside of my knee and it feels like I've burned it, with a little bit of "black and blue," which seems kinda weird. But other than that I was able to walk around OK today and the joint itself doesn't feel sore. Nevertheless, I'm gonna still take it easy. I hope it clears up in time for the 30K next weekend.
