Still sore enough from the race I thought it best to not run. Went to the gym instead and did a variety of cross-training stuff for about an hour.

Ran 8 easy miles on a comfortably cool sunny morning. Felt better than I was expecting with not much soreness left in the legs from the race.

Easy 8 mile early this morning. Felt pretty good other than old itis's that never go away.

Six easy mostly with Kimi.   Did 6 x 10s hill sort-of-sprints in the middle.  Still a bit sluggish and a little stomach weirdness going on like I get sometimes that can turn into an ulcer, it's the stupid Ibuprofen that does it.
