I haven't blogged much this week... call it recovery. After last Saturday's marathon, I was pretty exhausted - both physically and mentally. I can't remember a time that my entire body was so sore, from my shoulders through the core, glutes, legs and even my feet. I took a couple days to let my body heal. Yesterday I got back out there and ran an easy 3 miles; this morning 5 miles. My body is feeling good now, but I'm resisting the urge to go full throttle too soon. I've done it before, resulting in injury. That is not an option I can handle right now.
Marathon Race Recap coming soon!
I've been using my free time to catch up on my work... and create a new training plan of course. See the plan here. I've got two more big events in the next month (Bayshore and Ragnar) before I taper down over the summer. My goal for summer is to relax and have more fun with my family. Last year I was training for my first marathon and felt like it stole my entire summer. I have a full calendar of fall races, but half marathons don't suck nearly the amount of time and energy out of me as training for a full does.
Have you picked out your fall races yet?
Next week I'll share my favorite fall marathon... and give away a free race entry!
