Really good! I felt some strange discomfort in my tailbone when I started. I stopped and walked for a bit, and didn't feel anything. So I tried running again and felt fine after that.

Yes, lame. (20 in 2:32:24) Fri, 18 Oct 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 17, 2019 http://Donald.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-17-2019.html <p>Easy morning treadmill run.

Finally starting to get close to full recovery.

(14 in 1:52:02) Sat, 12 Oct 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Oct 11, 2019 http://Donald.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-11-2019.html <p>Easy treadmill run. Most comfortable I&#39;ve felt all week. I think I delayed my recovery a bit by doing too much mileage. I didn&#39;t think that would be the case if I went at a very easy pace, but now I&#39;m finally starting to feel better. Lack of sleep probably didn&#39;t help. Note to self: just cause you&#39;re pacing the marathon doesn&#39;t mean recovery will be as simple as that from a typical workout... (5.8 in 0:47:43)</p> <p>More smooth running at lunch today. Just slow, but that is a nice thing. (5.32 in 0:47:24)</p> Fri, 11 Oct 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 10, 2019 http://Donald.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-10-2019.html <p>Easy treadmill run this morning. (6.1 in 0:50:50)</p> <p>Easy run outside.

It was really fulfilling to help pace some of them, and see the gratitude and excitement from some afterwards. A lot of BQs! I can't wait to pace again!

(6 in 0:48:00)</p> <p>4.68 very easy at lunch time. It felt really good just slow jogging today. But...disaster might have struck near the end, as I developed sudden soreness on my lower shin on my left leg.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 27 Sep 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 26, 2019 http://Donald.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-26-2019.html <p>Slogging along.

I woke up a little better but I decided not to run anyways. I still got up at the same and did homework instead. Now I feel awesome! I&#39;m definitely going to do a lunch-time run!</p> <p>Oh man. Running today was pure bliss. I can only think of one or two other times when I have felt this good running. Not that I usually don&#39;t feel good...I run almost every day because I like it. It&#39;s just times like these where you don&#39;t want to stop, and it feels exihilirating to go faster and faster. Too bad it was at work, or I probably would&#39;ve kept going.
