Took the vehicle that had been sitting in the garage for a week out for a drive today. A very easy and gentle 7 miler to the park and back, staying on grass and trails for most of the run. It felt so good. The week off was just the trick. Between the last week of the taper and this past week of recovery – minus the marathon, of course – the body seemed to have fared pretty well. Legs, check; knees, check; and the plantar fascia feeling healed. Everything checked out okay, we’re cleared to go again.
