Working Out

I don't have any mileage to report really, but I did work out this morning. Actually, last night I did a mini strength training workout (and realized what a weakling I am!). Then this morning I did 15 minutes on the eliptical. I could feel my right knee flaring up a little, but it never really hurt. And it definitely did not lock up (ok that's a little dramatic, maybe "tighten up" is more accurate) like it did Monday morning. So I thought I'd test it further by running the 1/4 mile back down to my apartment. Again, I was aware of a little pain/soreness, but nothing like Monday.

My plan is to rest again tomorrow... actually I will do strength training.. then do a little tiny run on Friday morning. I will be prepared to walk/run as needed and will do like 2-3 miles max. If that goes well I will do a short run Saturday morning. But no worries, I figured it would take me 3 weeks to recover completely from the marathon, so I'll do as little running as necessary to make that happen. :)
