Apologies for the mental image of me in a denim dress spinning wistfully on a German hilltop. Truth is, I’m not sure I could spin even if a Tony Award depending on it. ( Actually, I totally could – and I would nail-it!!!!) After my half marathon this past weekend, my quads, arms(???), and core, are TRASHED. Here is a 100% anatomically correct depiction of where I am sore:
|Like looking into a mirror|
(At least in my head)
Another issue is that I recover pretty slowly from races. So, what that means is that I took off Monday, ran 4 slooow miles Tuesday, and took off today as a precaution. I don’t want to hurt myself but at the same time I want to be able to eat whatever I want and keep my girlish figure……so, I need to get back on the road.
Do you recover well from races faster than Charlie Sheen sobers up? Or are you like me and need a few more days that normal to step back up to the plate? I really don't think that I'm doing anything horribly wrong, but probably also need to reevaluate what I am doing after races to put myself on the right foot.
