A good run with a disappointing aftermath...

It's safe to say after my knee pain Saturday that I was worried heading into my 4 mile Easy Run today. Normally 4 miles is such a simple run that I don't really even think much about it. Well, I was feeling really good the entire run and was tempted to add a couple miles to try to gain back the mileage I lost over the weekend, but thought better of it and stopped at 4 miles as scheduled. For the first hour after the run I was feeling good and really happy about it! Then after about 45 minutes in my chair at work I got up and **twinge** there's the knee!! Yep, still a very non-specific, hard to describe pain, but it was there again. Hmmm, I wonder what it is, and I'm not sure what to do about it. I can't really skip too much of my training considering this is my first marathon, but I also don't want to injure myself. I have Tuesday off from running according to my training plan, and I think I'll change Wednesday's Tempo Run to an Easy Run to try to take some of the pressure off. Hopefully that will help settle things down a little. Got to get this knee under control.
