A nice mostly sunny windy day in upper 50’s, got out this morning and got in a hard workout on the trails, on parts of the course of this Saturday’s 5k XC race. Some sprints up a couple of key hills, 6 on each hill, and fast runs along some key stretches. A good workout, basically some intervals on trails again, made the injured left knee sore again during the workout. Besides the soreness, the knee was in the back of my mind the entire workout. The injury and the soreness is becoming a nuisance, frustrating in not letting me go all out without hesitation. Will take it easy the next couple of days, forecasted for a rain/snow mix, and get ready for a cold Saturday morning of hearty XC and hopefully a cooperative knee.
