Today, a recovery run of 5 miles went well. I really didn't feel tired and I just chugged along at just a little under 8:00/mile pace. I would have liked to gone a little slower, I feel like my recovery run, in order to be an actual recovery, should be more in the 8:30/mile range. I'm going to work on that, as I want to stay healthy.
All through the second half of my run, my left was sore on the left outside thigh. I couldn't understand why because all I had was my phone with me. I didn't have keys or anything sharp. Whatever, I shrugged it off until I got back from the run and checked out my leg. It seems that my big Galaxy Note 8 was bouncing in the same spot and actually bruised/chafed my leg. I don't know whether that makes me a wuss for feeling it or a tough guy for powering through it :)
Who get's hurt on a recovery jog?
