It took a few minutes this morning to loosen up, but a lot of the pain is gone. Finally. I skipped the regular Sunday morning run club run, but somehow that didn’t stop me from (a) getting in a solid two klicks just around the park a couple times, and (b) chancing an random encounter with Greg, Suzanne, Lynda and Sharon who were plugging away at their 24km this morning and just happened to be running past the park when I was about a third of the way into my run, too. That was a nice boost. I’m not taking the pain meds anymore: it’s not worth the side effects for the minor difference in relief. And I’ll just keep slowly working it back to normal. And unless something goes really badly south tomorrow, I’m going to call it “the end” on these little updates.
