First run in almost three weeks after Lunenburg 5k race. Have been fighting a cold almost the whole time since then. Was worried knee had weakened in the meantime, but it seems to be okay. Took it slow, but was surprised that it was relatively easy to hold a 5:00 pace over first 2k. Fought some mild/moderate stitches on right side for last 1k, but just slowed pace to control it.
