I really feel like I'm getting back into the swing of things.  Knee is almost becoming a non-issue - its a little tight during runs, but absolutely no pain in the last three.  Left ankle was a little sore today from the treadmill last week (I had some swelling in it last night for some reason), but other than that, today was pretty good.

Ran about 3 of the 13 in the grass to simulate a trail run - which felt pretty good on my joints.  Took the rest of the run fairly easy, only getting down to 7:00 for about two different mile stretches.  After a 3 mile SLOW warm-up, stayed around 7:30 for the remainder.

I ordered some softer-soled running shoes that should be in today or tomorrow.  I excited to try them in the colder temperatures.  I think changing to a softer shoe in the winter will help reduce the impact of the run.

Madi has had a little muscle pain the last few days.  She's just like her ol' man and pushes herself to the limit in everything she does.  She's probably pushing a little to much right now, but she ran 5 today without incident.  She's doing great!
