March 23, Post Marathon

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

I first want to thank everyone who replied to my Marathon Post, it really meant a lot to read them all.

How quickly I have recovered from my Marathon experience. It has only been 3 days, and I'm feeling amazing. I can get up for sitting and I'm running up and down the stairs, Just 2 days ago I was holding onto the rail going up and down the stairs and getting up from a seated position was really painful

I've made sure to ice the back of my legs (from top to bottom) at least twice a day for minimum 30 minutes. The pass two nights I had my husband use the rolling pin on the back side of my legs and butt, and morning and night I rubbed Blue Gel Pain Reliever on the back side of my legs and knees. It is amazing by doing all these things I'm feeling really good.

I plan on resting the rest of the week and getting back to running on Monday. I'm going to stay around 5 miles and then add to it. every few days.

    This shows you've done a good job in your training. You raised your anaerobic threshold so your body recovered more efficiently. Now, you're ready and will be more motivated to take on your next race if you decide to!

    You've signed up for a tri, haven't you?
