Nice! Two trail runs in two days and my knee is fine. I did feel it a little today but after some thought and feedback from others I suspect it's partly doe to the shoes I wore.
ASIDE - these are the same shoes I wore during the second half of Cascade Crest. the first half was without issues, the second half my body started to fall apart. Yes, I know it can't all be due to shoes but I'm pretty certain they contributed. Ironic when you consider what they are intended to do.
The group was really mellow (which is what I was looking for) so I would double back at intersections and grab the last person and bring them up. I did go hard on two hills chasing Eric (couldn't catch him) and on one descent (he couldn't catch me). Fun!
I'm just incredibly stoked to have run 24 miles in two days.
Yesterday (and Friday for that matter) I experienced some chafing on my upper, inner thighs from what I can only guess was my shorts? This has never happened to me before so today I tried a really cool liner short by Brooks. Problem solved.
