first run post-marathon

Sunday night was the worst for me post-marathon. I was sore and stiff and just couldn't get comfortable no matter what I was doing. Monday was better with just mostly hip flexor stiffness (likely due to the extra walking and that middle climb of the marathon). Today, most of the stiffness is gone and my legs are just sluggish. Our running plan today was flat and slow - a gentle saunter or even plodding. Instead, we did flat and a relatively good clip! My legs are feeling "full" but no longer sluggish. They were on auto-pilot for the last mile of our run; it felt really good.
Stats: 5 miles in 55:221 for an 11:05mpm pace
