Week 1 Apres Boston is complete: 34.6 miles
Here’s how the week shook out:
Monday: Ran well walked too but we won’t talk about that, 26.2 miles.
Tuesday: SRD. Just the front of my thighs are tender, really not bad at all.
Wednesday: Yoga, corework. Soreness getting better not worse. Hooray!
Thursday: Yoga. Feeling great! Trying to keep the momentum going and maintain better (meaning less food) eating habits
Friday: Yoga, corework. Sleeping like a freaking log!
Saturday: Yep more yoga. Slept 9:30p to 7:30a. Unprecedented. Ahhh!
Sunday: 8 miles, 8:48 pace among gentle, fragrant breezes and birdsong. There was a wall of ominous black clouds threatening from the West but I finished before they became an issue. Ice skating with the kiddos.
Notes: Big sigh of relief having Boston pressure behind me. Wow what a fun weekend! Recovery has gone very nicely I must say. I think the body definitely acclimates and learns to rebound faster and faster. Besides relaxing a ton, I spent the week shopping for new races but haven’t committed to any…yet. Time to regroup, retool, refresh and come out swinging once again!
