Recovery Run

Wednesday, June 22, 2011:

Raining this morning, so we three picked up Jim and ran for an hour at the Stillwater Bubble. In that time, Jim and I ran about six miles. He could have gone faster and farther, of course, but had run a speedy half marathon a few days before and seemed content with an easy recovery run with me today. We chatted a lot.

Patellofemoral syndrome, runner’s knee: The right knee hurt a bit at the start, but I ran anyway, and by golly after a while it felt better. Toward the end I didn’t think about it at all, though it did hurt a little when I stopped and walked. Man, I’m tired of bitching about that knee!

Except for the knee, I felt great after the run and had a good session later with the therapist who is trying to correct the underlying muscle weaknesses that presumably contribute to the runner’s knee.
