Yesterday, I ran a 15 miler...a step back week according to my training calendar. I'm still wondering when "only 15 miles" became part of my vocabulary. The good news is I seem to be handling these runs much better. Recovery is pretty quick...It's only the first few hours post run where I feel like crap.
I come home and immediately eat. Then I shower. Then my wonderful husband spends time rubbing out my legs (mostly hammies and calves). By the end of his massage, I feel like I'm becoming a real person again. Then, I typically eat again. Last night I woke up at 1:09 and was famished. Apparently, I didn't eat enough after those miles yesterday.
I digress....today is Sunday. Historially, Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest. I think I will take that literally today. No exercise. Sit back, relax and watch some football. Dinner is already cooking (I LOVE crock pots)! All soccer cancelled due to rain. I think it's a sign...relax and enjoy the day!
