My first trail run in one month! And overall it felt great.
I connected with John Phillips (and old bicycle racing friend that also runs) and did the staple 10-mile loop on Cougar Mountain. Good times.
The weather was perfect, the trail conditions were excellent and my left knee/IT band held up like a champ until about one mile to go when it started to twinge. Luckily it didn't 'hurt' so I kept going and the discomfort abated and after the run I felt fine so no damage done.
This was one of my slowest times on this loop but also one of the most enjoyable. Lesson learned hopefully.
Man it felt good to get out on the trails.
