Recovery days...maybe.

After Saturday's race, I really expected not to be able to walk. The recovery from St. Jude's was "a little" rough, and I expected this recovery to be much worse as the hills at the end of the course were brutal (have I mentioned that?) and I pushed harder on pace. Oddly, I am not sore at all. Maybe my body has conceded? 

Regardless, I'm taking a few days off from running to rest my hips and knees (and whatever else might need it!). It's actually been a struggle to rest. Sunday was beautiful and if there had been any way I could have gotten a run in (Jeff was gone most of the day!), I'm pretty sure I would have. Crazy, right?

I may try the kettlebell "Cardio Shred" again tomorrow, but I will run again Thursday...and probably Friday.


  1. Thanks for sharing your pictures! I enjoyed seeing them. Congratulations on a great race run! I love seeing the pictures of little Riley...it brought a smile to my face. Sit back and take it easy for a few days now.

  2. The more you run the quicker the recovery process. Glad to hear you're feeling well!
