How to recover from a bad marathon and stay sane...
*get an hour and a half treatment on the bad foot. OUCH...I was running two days later but there has been some tendon damage. Everything was just seized up in my foot but it's getting better and I have run twice for 4 miles at a time. S L O W L Y !
*eat some Cadbury Eggs(protein, remember?).
*I denied myself about four or five GOOD races during training(both 5ks, 10ks and half-marathons because I knew my FOOT was an issue. Now I'm sticking to some shorter races...I'm excited!!
*garden, planted tomatoes, sunflowers and cilantro and zinnias.
*jacuzzi every night
*gear up for BS' ULTRA this Saturday. We're heading out on Friday. This is going to be fun...he's running a 50k. Check out the course here:http://leonadivide5050.com/.
*planning a race for May 14th.
*gearing up the Pretzels for our Kindergarten Circus in May.
*adjusting to my new diet of NOT BEING ABLE TO EAT ANY DARN THING I WANT. Gosh, how I love marathon training and DISLIKE being back to having to eat LESS!!! Ok, besides the Cadbury Eggs.
*running just to be running(and feeling so grateful)!
