It's 4:45 AM and I am actually able to get out of bed without a loud moan. This means that the pain has subsided enough to try for a short recovery run. It's been 3 days since my 52 miler and I am starting to feel lazy. I met the boys at their office for a short 5 miler. We took the "scenic" route around our new local outdoor mall. The weather wasn't too cold this monring either. Taking the first few steps was actually quite paingful. My right knee and ankle really didn't feel like running at all as indicated through pain shooting up my leg from both locations. Whatever, I decided to push through the first mile and see how I feel. At that point, I could always turn around. As luck would have it, this pain also disappeared after the first mile. While not completely gone, I could tolerate the minor discomfort that remained. I was just glad to be back on there running. We ended up running a slow 9:55 pace, thanks guys. I really needed to take it easy. Hopefully, I will be back at full speed soon. After all, I have a "short" 10 mile race I want to run this weekend as part of my training.
