    March started out well. After my son's basketball game (a 44-11 snoozer in our favor) I went to my Winter Warrior group run. I wanted to run an easy pace but, like a race, I was pushed by the group pace and my first mile was 8:30. I had a hard time getting down to 10:00 so I decided to run at my hoped for marathon pace of 9:00. That worked out well and my splits were 8:49, 9:05, 8:56, 9:03, 8:52, 8:57. I'm very pleased with that consistency. Finished with 7.23 miles.

    Knee report: I could feel it before and during the first couple miles, but then the pressure went away. Felt fine at home but I iced it anyway. Feeling really good today. I just can't figure this out though. The pressure (not enough to call pain) comes and goes with no apparent reason. I'm just going to keep running with it unless it gets worse.

    I have yet to tally up my plan miles for March but for now I'll say 140 miles is my goal. I've also created a goal of 1500 miles for the year.
