Just a couple of easy miles this morning before work. I've had a sore right quad for the last two weeks, but I think it's about healed.

Still pretty sore starting out, but the right quad eases up after a mile or so. It doesn't hurt anymore during the day or when I wake up in the morning. I don't think it's going to cause me any long term grief.

I was awake before 5:00 am, but hoped to get back to sleep. I should have just gotten up at that point. The soreness is still there starting out, but I can start picking up the pace once I get warmed up.

Walked with Laureen for a couple of miles. Temperatures in the low 40's, but humidity was high. Started to rain lightly on the way back. She had foot surgery in November, but is recovering nicely. Her doctor cleared her to start jogging after her checkup on Tuesday. She managed about a mile yesterday, but her foot was swollen today. I ran after we got back.

Mostly an easy run, but started to pick it up at the end as my sore quad is feeling a little better all the time.

Feeling a little better all the time. Started off kind of slow with just a little soreness, but felt decent after a half mile or so. Picked up the pace for the last mile. Once I can get back to consistent daily workouts, I'll start to pick up the pace and the mileage.
