Not Too Much New on the Running Front...

I'm in Week 2 of my 100 push-up challenge, and so far, so good. It's tough, but surprisingly possible so far. I've been running Tue/Thur/Sat with Amber (on Tue/Thur, Heather comes too). We haven't gone more than 7.5 miles since my race, but that's been ok with me. Yesterday Amber planned a pretty run up in Penryn off of Butler Road. We got to go off-roading for a bit up a trail, and that was kinda cool. I noticed, however, toward the end of the run that my knees were acting up again. I really haven't felt pain in them for probably a few months now. I think it must be associated with the hills we did? The route really wasn't that bad, but there were some definite hills. I didn't even think about them being an issue since it's been so long since I've had problems. Today my knees are still bothering me. I think I'm gonna have to figure out a way to avoid hills when possible...other than that, nothing new...just starting to gear up for the American River Parkway 1/2 on May 2nd!
