My recovery is going pretty well. The bruises on my feet have gone away and I don't have any blisters to deal with like at Mohican! I still have a bit of inflammation behind my left knee, but no soreness. I could have run today but I am saving my legs for my 8 hour race this weekend in Illinois. It is going to be another hot weekend, that will be my only advantage in this race. My ultra friend Marla, who lives in IL and is also running the race, is letting me stay with her Friday night so I will be driving there after work tomorrow.
I plan on taking it pretty slow and doing a lot of walking. My goal is to do at least 50k. I can't spend to much energy, as I have to get back to normal training next week. I only have 2 weeks left before I have to start tapering AGAIN for Plain 100!

you know, when I think about your running schedule, it reminds me of Fred Davis. He must just be in constant taper, from one event to the next. Now I understand how some ultra listers say they don't really train much, but just run one ultra after another. No time to train, just taper, race, taper, race.

Best of luck at the 8 hour.
