Tried something new today. My wife let me borrow her knee brace for my run. What a difference it made. It seems my left knee needs some extra stabilization. I think the patella is getting pulled around making the patellar tendon kind of mad. It went well enough that I think I will go look for some knee braces of my own so I don't have to borrow my wife's.
45 minutes easy again today. Pace picked up a little because I wasn't thinking about how long it was going to take for my knee to loosen up and quite barking at me. I was just thinking about running, seeing the stars come out and the songs on my mp3 player.
Last night I started listening to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Quintessential Phase on my run. Absolutely hilarious (at least to me). For those not familiar, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy began life as a radio show on BBC radio, then it became a series of books and a TV show in there somewhere. The radio show is by far the best. I do enjoy the occasional audio book/podcast while running. Not every time, but once in awhile is good as it breaks things up a bit.
I've been listening to The Prairie Home Companion for close to 30 years now. Only today did I realize that Garrison Keillor puts a fart joke in every show. How curious.
