It's been a week since I finished the Green Lakes Endurance Runs 50K. I didn't do any running the two days following the race. My quads were a little sore but they starting feeling better on Wednesday so I went for a short run during my lunch break at work. My legs felt tired but otherwise OK. On Thursday and Friday I ran a little longer and was still feeling tired but the soreness in my legs was completely gone. I was thinking my recovery was going well until I ran in Breakheart today. About an hour into my run I started to get some pain in my left knee. The same pain I experienced during the race due to the camber of the trail in some parts of the course. I'm guessing it's my IT band but I don't know for sure. I'll just have to monitor it and hope it doesn't get any worse.

Today is such a great day to run. I'm thinking about my friends running the Wapack Trail Race [results] today and wishing I was there now. It was wise for me to past on it, but still can't help feeling like I'm missing out on something good.
