I’m back!

That was a long week of eating, drinking and no fitnessing!  It was necessary, but I am SO READY to be done with it.  I can’t believe that there are people who live like that all the time.  I felt so OFF all week.

The good news:  I walked 5 miles yesterday (2.5 miles in morning, 2.5 miles in the afternoon) and ran 35 minutes (probably 3.5 miles, I didn’t have garmin) today AND FELT GREAT!  No IT band issues (knocking on wood right now).  No post-marathon soreness issues.  Legs were a bit heavy, but that is to be expected.  Lungs actually didn’t feel too bad – I thought taking a week completely off would make me lose aerobic capacity.  I guess the real test will be when I try speedy stuff (not this week).

Plan for this week will be all easy running and biking.  Might mix in some pilates too.

It feels SO good to be running again!

    Great to hear you made it over the hump and off to bigger and better things. Do you have big goals for TCM?

    • I always have big goals! 🙂

      I’ll have to wait and see how things feel this time around before deciding what the goals are.

      I do have an exciting training cycle planned though, which I’ll blog about soon.
