July was my second biggest month ever. I ran 296 in January. That's not a typo above. My average pace and heart rate were identical for January and July. I feel pretty good about that considering it's a wee bit warmer in July.

My left knee gave me trouble today. I think I've reported before that I've had this problem where my left knee can occasionally hyperextend and give me a sharp pain in the back of the knee. I never get the sharp pain during running (it usually happens carrying my daughter to bed or something like that), but I sometimes feel a strain back there when running. Today was one of those days. I also had a couple of times today on very short steep downhills where my knee didn't quite track right and I got a sharp pain on the medial side. I noticed this last week when I had trouble walking down the stairs during a fire drill at work. If there are no stair-like descents, I don't seem to have a problem.

Have a good week everyone!

Very nice numbers! I think it is quite impressive that your numbers are the same as Jan. Boy are you going to be ready to race when those temps drop!
