Recovery and then What?

Recovery is going well.  My work schedule works in my favor of recovery, as I work every other day this week, and get to sleep in.   My quads have almost lost their tightness.

I still have my eight inch long hematoma on my right leg.  I fell at mile 15 at Black Hills-whammo! very hard.

My case of poison ivy on both legs is still going strong and itchy.  It seems like the little different patchy areas takes turns itching.

I am on prednisone for this.  One of the side effects of prednisone is weight gain.

I stepped on the scale this morning.  Wow, that’s alot of weight gain.  I am blaming all of it on the prednisone.

It was certainly a good wake up call to get back to some clean eating.

I am planning on running/walking my 10K loop around the block tomorrow, just to shake out and stretch out the legs, then go attack my weed-infested garden for my holiday.

Future running plans-I believe I am going to run a 5K on July 13 and a 50K on July 27, as long as the coach approves.  I am pretty goal oriented.  I have to have some sort of “event” to look forward to, while training, whether it’s a race or just a group run.

It’s hard to believe it’s already July!
