Test Run

Just a short run this evening because I got out of work late and it was getting dark pretty quickly.

Mainly a test run for the new knee brace. Seemed like it did help. I ran my short circuit which is 1.400 miles in 11:26. That was four seconds quicker than my best time from about 19 months ago before my broken ankle and when I weighed about 15 pounds less, so I'm pretty happy about that.

The knee stayed basically happy and I was able to vary my speed from a 7 minute to a 9.5 minute pace without the usual discomfort. Hopefully this will keep helping. If it seems decent on a longer run, I think I'm going to order a better quality brace to improve the comfort factor.

So far, so good.
