Another week of springtime has come and gone and it was a rainy, stormy week. Lucky for me, I ended up missing the rain most days and was able to get out and getting a few miles during the week. Here’s a quick look at the total mileage – pretty average, but my lowest miles in several weeks. I think my body is still a little tired from the race two weeks ago if that’s possible?
Monday was Memorial Day and we had the day off! B wanted to take the kids to a local parade about 2 miles away, so he biked with them while I ran to meet them there. We then went to his parents’ house (about a half a mile away) for lunch, and then they biked home. So all in all I ended up with 5 miles to and from and to and from.
The rest of the week my legs were TIRED. I felt pretty good Monday, but for some reason my feet and legs just couldn’t move Tuesday through Friday. I felt like each run was a chore, but in my heart, I still felt like I should run for Taylor, so I made shore to keep on going and finish semi-strong before heading to work. I did get caught in a downpour (not drizzle, not rain but downpour that feels like there are buckets of water being dropped on you) on Tuesday, but that was about the only eventful moment in an otherwise uneventful week of running.
Here’s to hoping my legs feel rested and ready to run next week!
Some questions for you:
- How long does it take you to recover from a half marathon?
- Running to the parade made me wonder, do you ever literally run errands – like run to the store, or to a meetup/meal with friends, etc.?
