All better now
I figured since I told the world about my dog bite, I'd better reassure the world that I have recovered nicely! Coincidentally, it took pretty much exactly the two days that the nurse told me to rest, for the wound to heal enough that I felt okay to run. I took Monday and Tuesday off from all exercise, and then went out for 6.25 yesterday (I was prepared to do less if I felt bad). My leg still felt a little sore, but I think it was more from the bruising than the injury. I also moved from a gauze bandage to bandaids yesterday. This morning I did 6.5 (I could have gone further but I didn't have enough time) and really it didn't hurt at all. I'm going to cross-train tomorrow, then go back to my originally planned medium-long runs on Saturday and Sunday. My mileage this week will probably be a good 20 miles less than last week...but it is a cutback week, anyway.
