I have to say I'm pretty pleased with my rest and recovery from my marathon.

I felt good on Monday when Amy, Heather and I ran 5 miles.  It was an easy pace, and I was a little sore but I felt good!

Tuesday I met with a group who does another speed work out that I lead and even though I didn't run quite as much as I usually do on Tuesdays but I still felt pretty good...I do seem to have a shin splint.

Just one.  

I feel all lopsided right now.

I met up with Club Oly Running for my usual 5 mile run.  I took Grace (my dog) with me to make sure I didn't get any ideas about going too fast.  Grace doesn't like running any faster than about a 7:45 minute mile, although she would rather stay around an 8:00-8:30 minute mile. 

I got to run with some new friends Coleen, and Sariney and get to know them a little better.  To be honest I like my "down" weeks because it gives me a chance to run with people I don't normally get the chance to, and that's one of the things I love about running.

I also got to run with Niki and Kristin.  Nikie and I both had the great idea to run with our dogs in an effort to take the edge off the little rascals. (Niki runs with a beautiful Rottweiler.  Both Grace and I love Rottie's!)

Like I said a pretty nice rest and recovery:)

Oh, and Happy National Running Day!

You did a better job at recovery than I did.

I could have lent you Grace to act as an drag line.

I just make it a point to talk to people whos pace I want to run. Otherwise I'll go too fast.
