Felt good tonight

Day 397 - February 1, 2010

I ran with a friend after work tonight and felt comfortable for most of the run. I still have a nagging dry cough when I finish, but today I felt closer to 100% than I have in nearly two weeks. I'm not making any bold predictions on how soon I'll be back to normal mileage - we have more snow forecast for tomorrow and apparently there is a chance of the storm of the century this weekend. Thank goodness the wife decided we needed to replace our dead treadmill.

But, I did sign up for the Charlottesville 10 miler yesterday. The Charlottesville Marathon is probably out since I've lost two long runs, but I think I will run the half. The $70 entry fee makes me want to make sure I'll be in top form before I plop down that much cash. I'll make a decision by the end of the month.

Great to hear you are back on the mend. Unsolicited advice approaching: Take your time, let your body heal, don't sweat the mileage, keep the big goal (1000 days)in mind.

Oh I agree Doug. In my younger years I would have bounced right back to normal mileage and been sick for about 3x as long. I like to pretend I'm wiser now :)
