First Recovery Run

Normally I wait until the third day after a marathon to run again, and even then only a short, easy run.  The third day was yesterday (Tuesday), but I didn't run because I spent the day installing improvements in our "new" townhouse, and still felt a bit sore as well.  Today we three had meetings until late afternoon, and it felt wonderful to hit the trails after that.

I did our "standard" 3.4-mile loop around the lake, using a 15 to 40 run/walk ratio, and felt strong throughout.  A few muscles and ligaments complained just a little, but most of my body was refreshed by the exercise.  Nice run.  Time 45:40, pace 13:29.
