I am, apparently, very
lazy disciplined when it comes to recovery and taking time off of running, post-marathon.
Recovery from Twin Cities Marthon PR/BQ, week #1:
Miles run: ZERO
Cross-training: power-walked 3 days (i.e. at a pace that got me breathing heavy, not a walking-Norah kind of stroll)
Although, I did walk Norah every day too.
Days I drank beer at lunch. On work days. : 2
Days I drank beer: 7
Blizzards consumed: 2
Here’s what the week looked like:
- M: rest/eat/drink
- T: rest/eat/drink
- W: rest/eat/drink
- Th: 3 mile power walk/eat/drink
- F: rest/eat/drink
- Sa: 3 mile power walk/eat/drink
- Su: pilates; 5 mile power walk/eat/drink
Exciting news to come: I am THIS CLOSE to deciding on a spring marathon. I think I found a good one! Stay tuned.
