On my way back down the "bike path" from Sope Creek to Chochran Shoals, I hit a root and twisted my ankle and in turn my knee. I heard/felt a light popping in my knee (like cracking your finger knuckles). I've been having knee pain for the past few days but it magically disappeared immediately after this incident. Guess it just needed to relieve pressure through the "pop". My ankle was a little tender afterwards, but I kept going.
I love my new Adidas Supernova shoes! They are so cushiony!!! Trail shoes would have been preferred on the more hilly/rooty areas, but since I'm waiting on my first pair to be delivered, I was pleased with these street shoes.
I hit 8.27 miles very close to the end of the Cochran Shoals trail as it approached the parking lot. I stopped my Garmin and walked back to the car for my cool down period. Although this run took much longer than I could have done 8.27 miles on the street, it was a lot more scenic and refreshing. What a great run!
