4 miles on Thursday...was so easy...because I had done it before. No real pain. Just glided along and listened to my music and was happy that my weekend had already started!
Saturday: 5k Halloween run on base...I should have worn my belly dancer outfit!!!! Came in at #16 of about 35...but had some serious serious pain on the inside of my knees. Went to a running store afterwards and he said it was my shoes and that i turn my feet in when i run, and that i have low arches... I tried on several pairs and one felt like air. My knees, ankles, nothing hurt when I put them on. I think I'm going to go back and get them but wanted to check another store in my area. I was fine when I woke up on Sunday, but then went a fall festival with my nephew and played a little t-ball and running in my birkenstocks was not my smoothest move ever...knee pain came back.
So, I missed my 4 miles yesterday and am a little worried about trying it today...but i'll do the walk/run thing and try not to do too much.
Regardless of the knee pain, I ran 14 miles last week....I have never run 14 miles in a week...or not on purpose...One week down, several-many-lots more to go!
