D and I headed to the bike path today for an easy 3 miles. I'm still in recovery mode. I'm still taking it easy. And, quite frankly, I'm not feeling that great. Still tight in the hamstrings/calves/quads/glutes and everything else that's attached. More stretching and foam rolling is in order...well, right after I type this.
I've decided that I'm going to treat this like an injury. I'm not injured, but I'm not 100%. For some reason, things aren't springing back to normal. I can't quite figure it out. Anyway, I'm going to continue to take it very easy until I feel...well...100%. The good news in all this is that it's early February. There's no rush. If I don't start to feel better by the end of the week, then I might start thinking about worrying. For now, I'll just enjoy my short runs. Because short runs are better than no runs at all.
In other news, mad props to Jeff for skiing really well yesterday at the Great Glen Nordic 300. And double those props to him finishing his entire Ultimate Slider Combo at Moat.
