I ran today for the first time in a week. That’s a very long gap of time for me; first, I was incredibly sore from the marathon, then, I came down with a cold. I can’t say I was surprised to get the cold — it seems like a pretty common pattern for me to come down with something once the “big event” is over. Anyway, if I’m going to get a cold, the week after a marathon is just about the ideal time to get one, training-wise.
So, a two mile run today, straight up and down Taylor’s Ferry Road. I could feel there was still a little healing left to go in my quads. And my knee got a tiny bit sore. Well, what do I expect?
