|Post Race Awesome...|
It was a good week...I hit every mark on the training plan...which I guess isn't a training plan anymore? In the days just after the race...my legs were really stiff if I sat still too long. I wasn't sleeping well, but I wasn't really tired either. I thought I was going to be exhausted, but I wasn't. I made it to RFK to watch DC United play after the race. I was out and about walking around Baltimore the next day...just with a slightly slower gait. My knee was an issue but it was only bothering me a tiny bit. By Tuesday, I was taking stairs with no wincing. I was back at the gym, feeling fantastic.
I was really looking forward to getting my 2 miles on Saturday AM at the Soccerplex. Only walking, no running. I could definitely feel myself tire as I was making my way around the trail that has become like a home away from home. Funny to think 2 miles were exhausting after clocking much longer distances. With soccer games and practices surrounded me as well as the pitch where my love for soccer began, I was beaming...just like on race day. It is a really special place...and I'm pretty sure...I will keep getting miles there...even though the marathon is over.
