Runner's Almanac - Day 44-45, recovery

The soreness I feel in my legs reminds me of the pain post-LA Marathon. It's not as intense, but every time I get up from a seated position, it hurts enough that I slow down my walking pace until, a few moments later, I am back to normal. And then I sit, get up, and put on my old lady act again. The combination of Saturday's long run, the fall, and Sunday's yoga session, had a noticeable effect on my body. Of course, post-LA Marathon, I couldn't move at all for the rest of the day. The hurt was emanating from the inside out. So I take it easy these two days, ice and elevate.

Happy recovery!
