2 HOURS

My only goal for the day was to get in a 2 hour run. I would have loved to have hit my favorite trails and just run wherever I felt. However, with the knee pain I had yesterday (and since the city decided to plow the bike paths) I decided to stay off the trails.

This run was a little weird because I started out feeling hot and overdressed. About an hour later I was cold - especially my hands. Luckily I was carrying another pair of thin gloves. I put them on and then picked up the pace for the last 40 minutes and warmed right up. I made it the 2 hours I wanted and called it 14 miles.

This evening I came across another possible reason why my knee might be bothering me. I was playing a driving game on my x-box, using a steering wheel and pedals. It's easier for me to play this game by using my left foot on the brake, which isn't how I normally drive. Well after about 45 minutes my left knee was experiencing that same achy feeling I've had running lately. So I'll have to just stick with non-racing games for the time-being.

Those X-boxes can be dangerous!

You're telling me!!! You'd think I'd have outgrown video games with Atari.
