After the painful, slow and short run yesterday, I ran just a bit longer but slower than yesterday. I was trying to regulate my heart rate at around 150BPM not caring so much about my pace (which ended up at just above 9 minutes per mile).
As disappointing as it is to lose my speed and endurance, at least I am running again. With time, I hope to build back my speed and my endurance. Qualifying for Boston in March is my goal for now. I have the entire month of December to recover and then the next two months to build back up to the Phoenix Marathon on March 1.
