Reading the last two training posts makes my accomplishment at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Pasadena (recap coming soon) pretty freaking awesome. While my long runs for the race didn’t match the training recommendations, I felt very confident after pain-free 6 milers. Unfortunately, my glutes still need work and I did have knee pain after the race. On the bright side, the pain wasn’t as bad as after the Santa to the Sea and I was able to get back on the road a week later. My monthly total was almost back to pre-injury levels, a nice 38.35 miles thanks to the 13.1 boost!
