Session did not go as planned. I had already decided to repeat last week's plan, but now I figure I need to make a few other changes.

OK, four days off was too much. My left leg was stiff and, part way through the second mile,
I got a few twinges in my right knee. I dropped to a walk and only got one more twinge, then a mostly happy right knee. I still have some lingering soreness and stiffness in my right foot which may be contributing to my other issues. However, the right foot is improving, if slowly.

I plan to do a walk/run sequence. This has worked for me before. I will also walk a bit at work during lunch. I will adjust as needed if improvements cease or significantly slow.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that. Urgh. I hope you can ease back into it soon.

Me too.

I'm planning to take a break through next weekend. If I still have the soreness on the top of my right foot, I will arrange to have it looked at professionally.
