My first run back yesterday was the best first post-marathon run ever. No creakiness or soreness. Right towards the end of my run my right hammy felt a little tired. But no worries.
I normally love running because it is my me time and gives me a chance to slow down my thoughts, process them and figure things out. I don’t ever run with music because I like sorting through the thoughts in my head.
This morning’s run was different for me. In a good way. Strange to describe, but this morning’s run was all about me running away from me and my own thoughts. And it worked. For 53 minutes I stopped thinking and processing. And it was exactly what I needed.
