4 Mile.  Nice 43 degrees. Overall decent feeling. I notice I am running a bit stiff - almost waiting for that severe pain to hit. Thankfully it has not and hopefully I am far enough along in my therapy that it wont come back like that. I am expecting some pain, and can handle that, just do not want a relapse.

Bit chilly. 17 w/6 degree wind chill. Run felt 'ok' and honestly that is to goal for now. My therapist gave me the 'ok' to increase my mileage some so that is great news. 

On a side note, she video taped me running and reviewed it with some people. They said I was running VERY stiff. I watched it and agreed, the problem was fear. I am afraid to loosen up because I am waiting for it to hurt. That is something I need to get over. They also said I was heel striking and wanted me to consider changing that. I honestly have never been a fan of changing my gait but maybe should, but when? I want to build my base back, and quickly get ready for Boston. Honestly I am not even sure how to go about it, I mean I have already read tons about it, but I have no desire to run barefoot (yes that is extreme).
