Easy run in the gully. I'm feeling pretty beat up. I'm not happy with how slowly I 've bounced back from the race on Saturday. I had almost marathon like soreness for a couple days. Yesterday's Alta run left me pretty wiped out for today also so I'm taking it easy.

Both knees are achy plus the left achilles. I'll stay on level ground and soft surfaces for a while.

Hope to get in a couple quality runs over the weekend but I won't push it.

Recovery from a half-marathon probably escalates to full marathon achy level when you spend the next 3 days in a car.

Seriously, you are wondering why recovery is long when four days after a hard half you run 10.5 at altitude? Half marathons shut me down for a week.
