Jogging Update

This morning I re-ran my first “Outside Jog”, which is 3.4 miles.

I felt good the whole time and had no knee pain.  I felt so good that I made a conscious effort to pick up the pace.  Nothing crazy fast, just faster than slow.

It is a relief to be knee pain free because, as strange as it sounds, I enjoy jogging now and felt a little lost without it.  Today’s run wasn’t the first one since my recovery, but it has been probably the farthest.

Part of my recovery, can be attributed to my new running shoes, as was suggested by my many internet-based running friends.  I tried nearly every brand on at the store, fully expecting to purchase Nike because they traditionally fit me best and I feel an obligation since I live in Oregon, but… I purchased Asics.  The fit was dead on and the gel made me feel like I was running on a cloud!  At least compared to my old NB’s…  I may now have a new favorite brand.
