I've been having a great recovery from my 5K on Saturday. My right leg felt fine during and after the race and during the day, including during my mowing of my lawns in the evening. However, by bedtime my right leg was a bit sore. I took a 3-hour nap after the race, and that helped me feel fine during the rest of the day. My wakeup heart rate this morning was 51, one beat lower than it was on Saturday.
This week is a recovery week, and I ran a nice 4 miles at a 12:34 pace. I was late getting out, and the temperature was in the low 90s (F). Even with the heat and no water, it was a nice run.
