The headline is that my injury seems to be progressing nicely. Each run seems to be better than the last and that, right now, is all I can ask for. I am happy with how things are going, but I don't dare say I'm out of the woods yet. Next weekend will be the next "milestone" in this recovery.
This morning, I ran with Jordan, Scott and this guy Alex - my first group run since coming back. We took it easy running and out-and-back along the Trolley Trail. I smelled the chlorine from my old prison and waved through the bamboo at my old Russian guard. 26:30. My hamstrings feel better than they did on Wednesday...as I thought they might. I plan on running 30 minutes tomorrow on the Towpath, my first run on back-to-back days. Sunday will be off.
