It’s been one week since the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon events (I did the 8k and half marathon).
I’m feeling some of those post-race blues. That’s right, I’m feeling a little sad. I’m sad that the races are over, the training has ended and that there’s no big race to look forward to for me yet. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving the feeling of not having any training on my calendar. To just go out for a run and enjoy it and not worry about pace, distance, time, etc.
And I DID enjoy some runs this week! This week (starting with Sunday’s half) included 27.7 miles of running.
Monday/Tuesday: I took Monday of and had planned on taking Tuesday off, but when B went for a run that afternoon I felt runner’s envy and had to go with him and so we took the stroller on a path and ran together. My legs were sore but it felt good to be outside!
Wednesday: And then Wednesday morning I decided to loosen up the legs a little more on the treadmill. I got in a slow 5k but was happy to have gotten it in!
Thursday: Thursday I made it 3.5 on the treadmill and felt a lot stronger.
Friday: Finally, I was feeling good! I made it 4 miles on the treadmill and then got to 5 with a cool down.
I’m ready to kick off June and hopefully get in some runs outside in the nice weather and get used to running in the heat again!
Some questions for you:
- Do you like running in hot weather?
- How soon after a race do you sign up for another one?
