So, today I did run, and it felt great!
I ran one of my favorite routes, 54 to Starkey Blvd and then back home. First mile was at 8:11 which is very fast for a first mile (usually around 9:00), then the next miles were progressively faster. At the start of the first mile I thought I felt a small twang from my IT band just below my left knee, but then it never came back. I've been having some on and off issues with it. Threatened to flare up before the marathon but was not a problem. I'm trying to keep it at the not a problem stage.
Weather was great, sunny and cool.
Average pace: 7:45
