No rest for the wicked. Or the running addict. ; ) With lingering soreness after running Boston, I decided I’d rather do a little bit each day then take extra time off. I figured I’d be sore regardless of if I was out running or sitting around at home chillin’ on the couch. I ended up running 9 days straight and felt better each day! I’m still not a big fan of hills of any sort but happy with my recovery progress.
Next up: two back-to-back half marathons! I’m running both for fun and to pace a friend at the Hippie Chick Half Marathon this coming weekend and Mr. Wasn’t Just the Wine Talking at the Youngberg Hill Half Marathon the following weekend. I’ll continue to take it easy for the next couple of weeks and then start looking for some races to add to my calendar!
