I had to make a pit stop around Mile 4 so I ducked into Bed, Bath & Beyond. This put me on the main road which had no bike lane or sidewalk available. I wound up running a hundred yards in the yellow painted island in the center of the traffic. Not recommended for the faint of heart. This happened again around Mile 7. There was not enough room in the center so I had to just sprint before oncoming traffic caught up. Spring can't come soon enough.
I checked the Hal Higdon 10 Mile Training program. In both the Advanced and Intermediate plans, he has you running a minimum of 10 miles before the race. Oops. It seems I'm doing things a little backwards these days.
Ice feels really good on the knee, by the way.
