AM run:

7.9 mi. Easy run (1:03:32) over to 5k race across town,

0.5 mi. WU, Columbus 5k race in 18:48 - fatigued legs from Carmel, I guess... Anyway at the 1.5 mi. mark I slipped on wet pavement and fell and landed on my left knee pretty hard - bruised and skinned.  

Felt really taxing on the last mile to run a 6:15 (5:42, 6:03, 6:15, 0:48), any way, good enough for a distant 4th and 1st age group... I need to get this 5k time down to 17:30 in a month (17:48 before marathon on semi fresh legs, so I think a little more speed work, and I'll be close?)

8 mi. easy run (in the pouring cold rain) home (1:02:07).  I kept thinking of Forrest Gump for some reason - "big ole fat rain"

Good race today! I would say, definitely fatigued legs from the marathon.

Make sure you ice that knee! Ouch!
