Residual effect

I really love going to the track, and yesterdays effort really had an impact on my body. My right groin, hip, left quad, all sore. It's the good soreness, though. I ran a recovery run today. I took it real easy and surprisingly averaged solid recovery pace. I came home and stretched. I am not icing the heel today. It is feeling better so I will see how it responds w/o treatment. I will still take the Aleve, though.
Larry and Clyde, (my dog buddies) hooked up with me today. They are a lot of fun to run with. They worry me though, how they run around in the road. People speed along this Hwy w/0 regard!
Totals-5.02miles/ 54:08/ 10:46's-38.89 miles this week. I am in a building phase so my goal is to log around 42 miles next week. I'm going to post a cool picture of a walking stick we saw this morning at our place here in the Boondocks! Peace
