6 miles- slow pace. About 5 miles in I had a guy stop his truck and ask me for directions to a certain street. I let him know where it was and he asked how far I was running. After a few moments of conversation we talked about marathon running. He said he used to run 7 mile, but not any marathons. All is normal until he said, well I am 69 now so I don't run after my quintuple by-pass surgery. He pulls his shirt down and shows me his scars, and said "I ate too much junk food", thanked me for directions and left. I knew it was going to be a banner day.
Leg update. After doing some exercises and testing I have figured out my legs have recovered fine but my slow progress is all in my left quad. I think the muscle is strained - just don't know how bad. I will have to go back to the docs I am afraid. I am leaving on a work trip Sunday too so it won't be right away for the doc. Trip is in Cancun so I will just have to suffer that one out.
