It does seem easier on my knee when I conduct a jog a quarter mile and walk a quarter mile. Time goes faster than you think. My biggest challenge is the knee has a problem going uphill no matter if I walk or jog. Obviously my mind set is I’ll get through all this and line up for the Glacial 50k on 10/11. If I don’t think I can break 6 hours then I might pass.
The glimmer of hope I did see was I was doing some 7-8 minute miles on a few short sections on the road. It came rather easy, but my knee was cooperating then. Like anyone, I’d love to get to the point that I could actually wheel off a few miles at a time at that pace. Either way it provided a tiny bit of fairy tale dust that my massive brain went ahead and coded as fact.
