Stillwater Dome

Stillwater Dome, otherwise known as the St Croix Valley Recreation Center. I used to run in cold weather, but since we discovered the Stillwater Dome we like to run indoors when it’s below 32 degrees. Friday we went to the Dome for the first time this winter. Not a lot of people there yet, but the crowds will build as the temperature drops.

This was the first real run since Sunday’s marathon, and it felt so good. I ran, without walking, for at least 35 minutes, and then walked one short edge, running the rest, for another 10 minutes. I think the pace was 10-minute miles or faster, so the distance was probably at least 4.5 miles.

The runner’s knee is back, though. I don’t know if it’s from running with no walk breaks, or from all of the corners in a soccer dome. Anyway it wasn’t bad and we’ll see how it goes.
