Thursday Thoughts: Recovery Week Edition

Random Thursday Thoughts:

  • Recovery week sounds so fun in theory:  eat tons of crappy food, drink a bunch of red wine, stay up late, sleep in instead of getting up early and running a gazillion miles.
  • In practice, however, recovery week sucks: I feel big and bloaty and crabby and edgy.
  • Post-marathon depression has set in more than ever, for me, this time.  I feel sad that the training is over.  Disappointed about my race.  Anxious to start training for something new.  I have a bunch of ideas floating around in my head – but will wait until next week to decide after I actually test out the legs and see how they have recovered (and make sure I’m not injured; I don’t think I am).
  • Anyone running the Gear Western half marathon this weekend?  I’m volunteering for it (with my kids), so look for me!
  • Funny searches that led people to my blog this week:  “Sappy Blog”, “child taller than mom”, “this moment is what we have don’t get ahead of yourself”, “blizzard dq” 🙂
  • I’m looking into new training plans/options for Boston.  I need to mix things up.  Stay tuned.
