13 runs in 5 days—the road to recovery?

I’ve been slowly recovering from Iroquois 100. I’ve been working back into training but have had some slight issues with a tight left quad and hip that is causing some patellar tendonitis. I’ve been confined to multiple short runs per day in order to stop running before any pain arises. I’ve done 13 runs in the past 5 days, totaling 37.2 miles. Longest run being 4.2 miles and the shortest being 1.7 miles. I’m hopeful as Ozark Trail 100 approaches. If I can get this thing to heal, AND if I can keep from irritating it, I’ll be able to throw down some longer runs before the race November 7th. Any suggestions out there?
