This weekend I did the first of my two 20 milers. I only made it 19 miles...but I think that was good enough! It was so stinking humid that I'm sure that accounts for something!
After the run, I hopped in an ice bath! Delightful...
I don't know if I enjoyed my greek yogurt with granola, raisins, and banana or the ice bath more. They were both wonderful after those hard miles. Thanks to Keri @ Blue Eyed Runner for inspiring me to try an ice bath!
I recovered really quick after those 19 miles and actually did a 5 miler today. Quite a difference in recovery times from the 1/2 marathon where it took me till Thursday to run again.
My training plan calls for 15 miles on Saturday and the forecast is a high of 64. 15 miles will seem like a walk in the park compared to 19 in high humidity!! After this weekend, I have one more 20 miler and then the taper begins. So exciting!
