nothing broken yet
I started running two days after the marathon, and apart from the usual something-always-feels-a-little-funny, everything seems ok. The runs have all been short so far (the longest, 5 miles, was this morning), and I haven't been trying for any special pace, but I find myself running a good bit faster than usual. This tells me that I'm recovering well, and my legs are responding to the much-lighter mileage this week. I figure as I add more miles my pace will slip back to something much slower.
I could blow all this good fortune to hell tomorrow, because I'm doing the running leg (10k) of a triathlon relay. I signed up for this months and months ago, not longer after the sfx was diagnosed. I was pretty depressed about the injury, and agreeing to a race way in the future was a way of promising myself I wouldn't quit running altogether. Anyway, the thing is tomorrow and I've never done anything like this before so I'm interested to see how it will turn out.
