Still recovering from my torn hamstring. Although far from cured, I did notice a distinct improvement this morning compared to yesterday. That’s the way these sort of injuries go. They get better much more quickly than overuse injuries. I still have to run very slowly and stop occasionally have to walk, but the rate of improvement is consistent with my past experience. I expect to be able to run fairly naturally by the weekend.

This photo was taken as I ran along the banks of the Mississippi River in Wisconsin (Minnesota is on the opposite bank). It was very near to the home of Diane and George, where we stayed for three nights. You may not be able to tell from the photo, but it was very hot and humid at the time. I was quite heat stressed by the time I finished my day of running.
