Hit Mt. Hope again today. Good run with ridiculous hills that are a fantastic workout. Despite the rest day yesterday, still feeling a touch beat up from the mileage increase, but nothing out of the ordinary. Still, I plan on taking a step back this week with the mileage to help with recovery, which is good timing because there's a lot going on this week with work, particularly on Thursday and Friday. I might just use both of those days as rest days, though somewhat begrudgingly.
On the PF front, I'm continuing to see genuine improvement. The general ache/pain I've felt constantly has waned dramatically, and when I do have flare-ups they are less intense, shorter, and I recover from them much, much quicker. And, all this has been going on while I've been ramping up the mileage. All good signs, for sure. I still have ways to go before declaring it gone, but I'm getting there. For now, it's just nice to be able to run comfortably for the most part.
