Pain-free running

Monday's session with Mary Massage Lady was soooooo painful. I knew it would be as she had to get right into the sore bits (right up on the bone in my bum). It makes my eyes water just remembering! BUT, yesterday I headed out for a gentle 3 mile plod and I was totally pain-free for the first time since the lawnmower incident, which is 4 weeks ago. I'm still not out of the woods yet and have to do lots of stretching but it made me feel much more confident. I'm tapering for the big race now so my runs this week will be no more that 3 or 4 miles and then I get complete rest next week. I hope that my body will respond well to all this rest and deliver the goods on the big day. GULP!
