      You have a plan! This is good. You've kicked ass, you'll.kick as again. In the meantime, you'll kick ass at getting better. ;-)

      Thanks, everyone! I'm trying really hard to be patient, but its great to have a solid understanding of the problem, and be able to work out a plan to get back out there. I think marathons will be my 'default bar' for long runs, with less frequent ultras. And, as I said, I need to make real rest periods a thing when I work up my training schedules. I really appreciate everyone's support!

      Osteo biflex is great. Keep taking it. You are a meticulous kinda guy, so you shoukd be back to normal soon. Recovery between long runs!! And I'm preaching to the choir!
