I haven't been feeling the usual aches and pains after a marathon, but I still wanted to give them some time to recover. I went out for a short run late this afternoon when temperatures were about 80 degrees. In many ways my legs felt better than I expected. At least some of the time I felt a little spring in my step, but it was still a bit of a struggle to get through the workout. I pushed it a little harder than I normally would after a marathon, just to see where I'm at. I'll probably take Thursday off and then go a little longer on Friday. This is such a pleasant time of the year to run.

Glad it looks like you are recovering well.

Always nice when the aches and pains are less than expected. This is certainly a pleasant time of year to run, fall and spring seasons in Utah are so nice.

Kerry, given your good shape, another marathon this year or early next year? Vegas baby?

Thanks, guys! It's kind of amazing how quickly you forget about recent marathon pain and start thinking about doing it all over again. Last Saturday just seems like a distant memory now :)
