A few walking breaks during my 4 miles. Had the girls so I stayed close to home on sidewalks, which my legs aren't a fan of all that much.
I didn't feel great or spectacular or euphoric for having run 4 miles the first time this year. But I completed it--and that's enough to be happy about! Then I went home and stretched for a long time and iced my knees, but my knees were kinda sore all day.

Recovery-wise, my legs feel fine this morning, and that, my friends, means I'm definitely doing things right.
