Pretty frustrating.  My legs still feel shot.  I was able to slowly run around the hospital and Albertsons but if I tried to pick up the pace at all, my left quad quickly disagreed with the change.  I'll just keep it easy all week and hope to work out the issues.

I ran in Eugene today and it was the best my legs have felt since the marathon.  I noticed some lingering fatigue in my left quad around the 6 mile mark but it seemed to go away after a minute or two.  Hopefully I'm making progress...

5 miles on Pre's Trail in Eugene.  Gotta love to soft surface.  Wish I could run here more often, especially post marathon.

AM: 6 miles this morning.  I ran in the same shoes that I raced TOU in.  Bad idea.  They are done. D.O.N.E.  A few hours later my right knee ached pretty good, the same ache I get every time I try to extend the life of overused shoes.

PM: 4 miles around the park in five fingers.  Its been a while since I used these shoes.  Felt good.

AM: 10 miles around GP.  I finally feel back to normal after TOU.  Now I just need to get my weekly mileage back where it needs to be.

AM #2: 2 hours and 3 pancakes later....I ran around the hospital and Albertsons with Ryan while breaking in a new pair of shoes.  They felt pretty good although there is no way I'd wear them for anything beyond a 10K.  Perhaps they'll grow on me.
