Easy 7K

I did an easy 7K though couldn't help myself afterward and sprinted a little at the end. My knee is still not 100% but its becoming the norm now, isn't it?
I did it on the track, ran clockwise for 22 mins and anticlockwise for 22 minutes then stretched and did some core strength exercises.
Today I rest and hope I will be in shape tomorrow for a hard 12K.

Here is Deriba Merga winning 2009 Boston Marathon.

Deriba Merga (Ejigu) became just the third Ethiopian to win the Boston Marathon with his dominating run at the 2009 race. In 2006, Merga won the Paris Half-Marathon, Wincanton Montferland Run 15-K and Great Ethiopian Run 10-K. He was also sixth at the World Road Running Championships 20-K.
At the 2007 WRRC Merga set PRs en route for 10-K (27:35), 15-K (41:34) and 20-K (56:13). Last year he also set a 10,000m PR of 27:02.62 at the Fanny Blankers Koen Games in Hengelo.

Merga began 2008 by becoming the first Ethiopian to win the World's Best 10-K (28:03) over an extremely competitive field. He ran his first Major at London and wound up with the fastest sixth place time in history, 2:06:38.
He is in the leading group of the 2009/2010 World Marathon Majors leaders board alongside Wanjiru, Abel Kirui, Gebrselassie, and Tsegaye Kebede all with 25 points.
