Another half day of hiking up shrines and parks in frigid Kyoto. Legs a little less sore, though not exactly enjoying all the stairs that subway stations feature. The escalators only seem to go up! Don't they know "down" is the direction that hurts?! 

(Ultimately all that walking was a really good thing, and by Thursday my legs weren't sore at all.)

In Yokosuka, an easy morning run on the boardwalk at Mabori-kaigon. Sunny and brisk, and my legs loosened up after a mile or so. Still some aches and pains (left ankel and right shin/top of foot) but most soreness has worked itself out.

Easy afternoon run in Illahee Preserve, back at home and somewhat back on Pacific Standard Time. All soreness is now gone, a week after the race. My ankel and foot didn't bother me at all either, though I can feels some little twings when stretching. A little low on energy yet, but that'll come back soon enough. No watch.

Now that the race is behind me, and hopefully the frustrations that led up to it, my goals are to be consistent for the next two months in the 30-35 mpw range, strength train once a week, add a little speed work and stay healthy. Jaguars track season begins in a week, so at least I'll be out on the track with the kids a few times a week.

Wet and windy morning, ran an abbreviated version of a Shore Drive loop. Left ankle is still pretty sore.

Evening run at the Y on the treadmill, 8/min pace for about 30 minutes. A little stiff in the ankle and then just a bit on my left achilles/calf.

Warren-Manette bridges loop on a quiet, damp morning. Cut it off a little early and walked in about half a mile, my ankle bugged me the whole time and then a little hip pointer developed. I'm just not all healed yet (at least I hope that's all it is). I didn't feel quite as wiped as I have on other runs post-marathon, so hopefully I'm recovering some energy now.

Morning basketball, ran full court for an hour. I didn't get a run in afterward because the day was packed wire-to-wire. So a little underwhleming for mileage this week, but I did exercise five days and other than a little ankle stiffness hanging around, I feel fine.

Morning run and my left ankle and achilles took awhile to warm up. Still pretty stiff when I wake up. 

Through Manette on 11th, over the Manette Bridge and then looped around Evergreen, stopped and checked out the new dock. Then back the same way. 30:00

Only two of us showed for morning hoops, so after Grant and I shot jumpers for awhile I went and ran two miles on the treadmill, then went to work.

Quick loop at Illahee, then as I started for a second loop I ran into Jon Buesch, walking his dog. I stopped to say hello, and half an hour later we were still there talking. So I figured it was time to bag the run and go get some dinner.
