So, today was my first running day since the marathon. I did 3 miles.
When I started it was rough. My groin area is sore on both legs and my lungs felt like they wern't at my normal 100%. I've been fighting off the crud for months, I just wish it would come and go and stop lingering. I guess I'll break down and buy some medicine!
So anyhow, the run went good. It started off bad, but as I progressed it got much better.
My food is also back in check. I haven't had any chocolate in SEVERAL days and I've also been sticking to my food allotment. I'm trying to work it.
Yesterday we had to work late! :( The joys of carpooling. When I work late, so does he and when he works late so do I. Yesterday he had to stay late so I worked 11.5 hours. I was wiped when we finally got home. I went to bed at 9.
Tonight I came home, cooked part of dinner, headed out for a run, came home to finish dinner and we ate. I'm now showered and trying to relax before I get up and do it all over again!
So, for my first day back to running even though it wasn't necessarily easy, I did it!
Oh and Spirit of the Marathon was AWESOME......
I think I want to run the Chicago Marathon now!
