I'm following McMillan's plan for Marathon Recovery because.... well, because it was in Running Times this month.

It called for 15 minute walks the past two days. I did 25 min. Monday and 20 min. Tuesday. Both days, I wobbled around the neighborhood like someone in dire need of medication.

Today called for my first run, which was supposed to be 20 minutes. But Nate was leaving the office at the same time, so I decided, "What the heck?" Nate's hip was bugging him, so the joke was that we went further than I wanted to go and faster than he wanted to go. We did five miles at a nice 9:04/mile clip.

All in all, I think I'm healing ok - there were some weird things in my knees and elsewhere, but nothing awful, so I took that as a good sign.

    Good run today. When my hip heals and you are recovered we need to hit some track work at the HS.

  2. Farther than you wanted to run...faster than he wanted to run...sounds like a fair compromise to me. :-)
