Got rough in the last 1.5 miles when I can usually start upping the pace. Lack of speedwork. But OK with that.
What would you do differently?:

I *think* I could have pushed more just after the half way point, but that's about all I'd do differently.

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?
