A couple of easy days and a good night's sleep resulted in a quick recovery from the lateral knee pain I had been worried about. This is somewhat due to the experience from past injuries...when I would likely push the workouts regardless of the pain. Funny how it takes several injuries over the years to learn the lesson.

The weather turned out great today. A light dusting of snow and temps in the low 20s but with beautiful sunshine. The running was crisp and fast when out for the morning. I needed to finish in time to be back as the volunteer at the nature center. I swung through the main lot to check the condition of the xc skating trails and saw a couple skiers that had been around the loops...said the snow was fast today!

8 miles for me today and the time out on the trail was much faster than earlier in the week...43 miles for the week.
