Yesterday I decided would be an off day… but I wanted to eat pizza last night.
So it wasn’t an off day.
My weight is creeping up on me again. For some reason even running 4 miles a day it is moving in the wrong direction. I don’t know why.
Yesterday was pizza night at my house. Normally the Friday that I get paid we get pizza for dinner and relax and enjoy.
I got home from work and decided to go run. It probably wasn’t smart as my body is sore from running all week and yesterday makes 8 days in a row. But even with not taking a day off this week, I’ll only be at 30 miles, so that isn’t too bad.
I’m off in a few to meet @BigBigGeek for some miles at the state park. That is always fun. We are going to run 6 miles which will be my long run for the week.
Question… Does anyone know or have experience on how long it takes to recover from a marathon? I mean fully recover. I feel like even almost 4 weeks later I am still a bit stiff in my running. It could be the heat that has popped back up or the fact I took a few weeks off.
Yesterdays run averaged about 10:00 pace with walking. At the end I pushed the last quarter mile down to a 6:40 pace just to get myself used to pushing through at the end (something TJ taught me).
Have an awesome weekend!!!
