I ran my first marathon as a teenager in 1981 with my Dad (The Coronado Marathon). Since then I've run St, George (3x) Utah Valley (3x) Ogden (1 full, 2 halves) Park City (1 x) Boston Marathon (1x) Washington DC (1x) Moab Half Marathon (6x) ,Ye Old Freedom Festival 5 & 10K (a million x) and many others.
But I'm all done with that now. I'm officially a jogger.
Woke up wide awake at 4:20, first thought on my mind was my next doctor's appt. It's going to be awesome. So instead of laying there until it turned light outside, I put on my headlamp and ran around outside for a while.
My hamstring/ sit bone ached after SAturday's 8 miler in the ran. So I took days off with RICE. It's helped but I've got to be careful. I can feel the tendonitis flaring up and I guess it will always be there. The good news is, I ran without the patellar tendon strap on Sat and it did not ache afterwards.
