Creaking Back to Action

ORN: 3 miles, no watch, felt good

In the four days since the marathon, I was not too sore, really sore, not too sore and pretty good. On Wednesday evenign, Gretchen and I went for about a 2 mile walk. It felt good and she had to keep bugging me to not walk so fast.

Thursday morning, I was back out on my favorite route for a 3 mile "does it all still work" run. It all worked. Felt really good to stretch as usual after 0.3 miles and the run was great. On the way back home, I saw morning running buddies Lu and Tony and swapped stories about their half and full-marathon weekends. How cool to stand in the dark and gab about The Wall and How We Hit It!

Another 3 tomorrow and then a local 5 mile race on Saturday. Great to be moving again.

Persevere.

It was a little creaky for me this morning and my hamstrings were pretty tight, but it was nice to get out and get some fresh air. Glad you got the pictures.

Yep, ran three miles tonight with the gang and felt good. Had my toe bandaged up and padded, and even that seemed good. Back to Pilates tomorrow, then back to the normal routine!

Glad you felt good too!

Glad to hear you're getting back in the groove and everything works! I'm heading out for my first run in a few minutes....
