The alarm goes off earlier and earlier, it seems. Today, I got up at 4:45 AM to have a quick cup of coffee before meeting the gang downtown at the Holiday Inn to run the Cotton Row 10K course. We decided to take it easy. Rather, I decided to take it easy and Mike and James were kind enough to not leave me behind. I was still recovering from the 12 hour race last weekend and maybe I should have taken off more time. My left calf was pretty tight early on and my right knee really felt on fire. I had the same problem after the Rocket City Marathon last year and the pain eventually subsided after about two weeks. I really do not want to wait that long this time. I have a couple of races on the schedule the next two weekends and it looks like I will have to take it easy in tomorrows race. Recovery has to be my first priority, even though I always try to chase my latest PR. Anyway, we ended up running about 7 miles and yu could tell that Spring is slowly approaching as there were numerous runners out early this morning.
