As Gordo says, I'm the canary in the coal mine, but I avoid running in pain of any sort because it triggers too much anaerobic/cortisol for my brain to handle and takes me days to recover from. I've no idea how that translates to the non-brain-bludgeoned.
As an example, on today's 5 mile run, I ran barefoot on a very rocky, technical, steep climb for a mile, then put on my huaraches because my feet had had enough. I would have gone down hill quickly without doing that. As it is, I'm hopeful I may run tomorrow (if I survive a church by Skype video conference that is), and my wife hasn't yet gone into labor. Sardonic grin.
It's all good (but is it the Best Good?).
