well, my 53 hour break from running seemed to help the knees heal up a bit, but i'm still feeling very sluggish and exhausted and continue to have slight shortness of breath. so i am a little concerned about that and will be visiting the family doc on monday to ask for some lung tests. i hope i haven't done any permanent damage.. not really sure if this is something caused by my 3 consecutive days of running/swimming for 5 hours, or if it is totally unrelated (who knows, maybe i am allergic to polen?).
anyway, i had a light 7k run today and it didn't go too badly. i've got a funeral trip this weekend so i probably won't run for a few more days..
