My knee is pretty much fully recovered now. I ran 4.5 miles today. I went pretty slow though – averaging an 11 minute pace for the first 3 miles then 13-14 minute pace for the next 1.5. I did run some sprints though which I am happy about. My goal is to get back down to a 9 minute average pace then push hard to get it under 8 minutes for the full distance.
I put on some weight while I was injured and now weigh 210. Prior to my injury, I ranged from 200-205. I think I need to maybe start using MyFitnessPal again to track my calories as I tend to eat a lot. Probably also make sure I am not eating after 6 or 7 pm.
