Made it out for a quick four mile run late yesterday. I started in the Lower Back Bay, and mixed it up a little by heading out onto the open streets (Eastbluff Rd, Jamboree Rd):
Not to worry. The sidewalks are pretty wide on these busy streets. At least I got some hills in:
I can tell that my body *still* doesn’t like me for my trek through Los Angeles a couple weeks back. My lower abs are tired/sore and my legs feel fatigued. I was pleased with my paces (especially when you look at the elevation profile above):
It’s just a tough painful go of it these days. I’m reminded of what one of my friends said once about running post marathon – it just takes time until everything feels right again. How long? Sometimes it’s a week. Sometimes it’s a month. He said once it took him 8 weeks until he was able to feel like he was doing more than just shuffling along. Time for me to be patient and get the miles in.
