Today I went out early for a nice 5 mile run. My dang knee was hurting pretty badly, but I was able to finish in 53 minutes (10:30 min/mile) and as soon as I started to walk my cool down, the pain subsided. I'm starting to worry that I'm going to have to run my marathon through the pain, but I guess I can work on getting it healed as much as possible during my taper period. After my run I came home and did 50 minutes on the elliptical. I just felt like I had more energy to expend, I guess. :) Coming up on Saturday will be my last (super) long run until the marathon - a 22 miler I will be doing with a group of people, all of whom run faster than me, so it should be interesting.
