Since my knee was still hurting, I saved the running for my race today. It was the Evergreen Pumpkin 10 Miler--the only race I had to use as proof of time for my corral placement. I was so nervous! Before I got injured, I wanted a sub 11 pace and then after I got injured, I told myself I'd be happy with a sub 12. Well, I got a 10:27 pace! And I got a 20 minute, 16 second 10 miler PR! Even better than I could have hoped for before my knee problems! My knee definitely hurt a lot, but it wasn't excruciating and I could run through it! I finally have my doctors appointment tomorrow. Here's hoping I find out something and don't just get the "ice it and no running" spiel!
(Just found out that was my gun pace. My actual chip time was 1:43:38...so a 20min 59 second PR and pace of 10:26)
