Pre-race routine:

Trying out my new knee brace. Just got it before Christmas and have only used it 2-3 times. This was an afternoon race, so I didn't have to worry about getting up early or anything.

Event warmup:

Fitted my new brace onto my knee. Had to refit it several times...I'm still not quite sure where exactly it's supposed to be on me. It's not the most comfortable thing, but it works on my knee pain, so I guess I just have to get used to ti.

  • 25m 10s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 07s  min/mile

I was happy to finish at this point. I've not been able to run much this past year, so no complaints.

What would you do differently?:

Not have knee problems and not need a brace.
Post race
Warm down:

Just walked around, had some water. Did a bit of stretching too.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Limited training, bad knee. Ended up with a bruise on my other knee from the times the brace hit it!
