Pace: 9:39 min/mi
Comments: And that was a thousand flavors of awful.
I was rather achy after Sunday's run and actually intended to go out this morning but had to get the oil changed in the car. A real shame because the sunrise today was spectacular.
I was noticeably sore in my quads all day but, after getting home and starting dinner, I decided to put the four mile in. The first step was deeply unpleasant and it got worse from there. I spent the first half mile just gritting my teeth to get through it and the next half mile warming up enough that my pace didn't suggest I had a sharp stone in my shoe.
The whole run was a real struggle. I surprised myself and actually stuck it out the whole distance I intended. That's a real victory at this stage in my return to the routine.
