The little boy is taking a very good nap, so here I am with a couple extra minutes on my hands. Yay!
Marathon recovery has gone really well. Make fun of me if you want to, but I swear those compression socks work. I wore them as soon as I got home, and then to work the next day, and I also skipped plain water and drank Nuun instead. I felt pretty good by Monday afternoon. I am still tight, but I scheduled a massage for this week, and I hope to feel “normal” by the weekend (whatever that is…I think I live in a state of chronically being a little tired and a little sore).
I got a really nice email forwarded to me from someone who took the time to email the marathon officials and say he thought the 4:55 pacers were great. It made my day. I needed something to perk me up. Jasp continues his good nighttime habits revolt, and I admit it has made me a touch depressed. I really questioned signing up for races the night before the marathon when I was up with him, because I have yet to do a race since he was born without a horrible night of sleep the night before. Anyhow, I don’t think the pacers do anything special. It’s a bit of work, but we are all running a race we would probably be doing anyways. It was nice to know someone got something out of it though. I really like being at a pace that allows people to break a time barrier. I think that is one of the main reasons we had more runners this year than in years past. And this year we got some really awesome gear 🙂
Mike is out of town and I had to run my loops around the block with the baby monitor. I listened to the latest RadioLab. What a good show. Do yourself a favor and listen.
Ok…time for that little boy to get up. We have a date with some ducks at Central Market. I think I will be treating myself to sushi from Central Market for dinner tonight 🙂
