I am feeling recovered from the marathon. Actually I would classify it as an ultra, as the GPS's on the course showed the distance at 28.5 miles. I like that.
Instead of 6x800's on Tuesday I completed 3, then headed out on the trail with Topaz. My shin was still feeling stressed from the fall/snowshoes and it just scared me. I've been injury free since I began to run, I don't want to ruin that streak. The trail felt good.
Wednesday I didn't run the asphalt with Run Club. Again, I opted for a kinder, more gentle run on the trail with Topaz. I loved it.
Today it is supposed to be 45 freakin' degrees. Yeah, 45F in Central Minnesota..in January. How does that rock? Woohoo! I love it.
I ran my tempo run on the treadmill this AM at 3:45 and the leggies felt great. I am feeling recovered and ready to roll. After work today is a snow shoe run in shorts I think! What a picture, hu? I can't wait to get out in that sunshine!!
At 645 this evening I have a massage scheduled. Ahhhhh.....I feel the release of tension already....
