Recovery…


Just a quick note before I have to dash off to work. Which, by the way, I just cannot get into this week. The high of running my race still lingers, and I’ve been so excited checking all my friends’ blogs about their races, who wants to read about traumas all day? Hehe, I better shift gears quick, got a lot to do.

Anyhow, I did a little 1 mile run Monday, and it was pure pain! I hobbled around at work all day. Yesterday I could walk normally, and I went to yoga after work. What a miracle cure. There was no way I was going to stretch my stiff muscles on my own that intensely. I felt like a new woman after I left class. Tonight is another little 2 mile jaunt or so, and tomorrow, I meet my awesome 5 hour pacing partner for one last practice. Friday is nothing, and Saturday is a little 2 mile jaunt again. I usually don’t worry so much about recovery, but I have other folks depending on my being 100% on Sunday for their marathons. Now that is a scary thought.

I got word of the weekend schedule, and I will be busy with the Expo and a long day Sunday. It will be a really fun time, and a chance to feel like I am running the marathon for the first time again, but I will be glad next weekend when I have nothing on my plate!

Ok, gotta run. Work calls….hope all my other running friends are recovering, or gearing up to have a great run this weekend.

Mike took the Pancake picture when I got home from Huntsville as he unpacked my camera. She was practicing her recovery. 🙂

  1. Good luck with your pace group tomorrow. I’m not sure how you do it because I’ve got the post race blues this week. I’ll let you know when I decide on a 100 miler!!
