Not till next week. ‘Er indoors and the kids have had to put up with my ‘marathon head’ for the past 16 weeks. Time for a non running weekend. Illuminations look tempting....
well its day 4 post marathon and Im feeling almost human
Been back to the gym but not going to attempt any running until weekend as my knees still feel a bit stiff. I seriously underestimated the effect the marathon would have on my body!!
It has definitely NOT put me off though and Im already planning my next one!
Having a sports massage later cant wait!
Still no running for me!! I feel fine but I came back too quickly after London last year & ended up having to take 2 months off a few months later. I don't want to repeat that mistake so intend to take a good couple of weeks off.
I have a lovely weekend planned, me & hubby are tomorrow night heading to the Merchant Hotel Belfast along with a bottle of free bubbly that was part of the deal. Then Saturday night we are having a bit of a hooley at our house which no doubt will go onto all hours!!
I love the week after a marathon when you dont have to run & can eat rubbish & over indulge to your hearts content!!
Hope you're all recovering well. It's been a bit of a manic week this week so I haven't got much training done. Managed some swimming and cycling and will be heading out for a run this weekend. I feel good though and my muscles feel normal again. Sadly I look my usual strange self in my race photos, I'm definitely not very photogenic!!
Good luck with all your crazy running Hot Tob, hope you have fun.
Did my first run since Sunday yesterday. A very gentle 4 miler which wasn't too bad. After RSM my motivation to run had completely gone, but I was chomping at the bit on Friday. Took it nice and slow and felt ok afterwards. The left foot is a bit sore today though so just cross training tomorrow and will see how I feel on Monday.
I've got a couple of races in mind for next month, Badger Bite and Belles of Pattingham or Schneider 5, but it'll depend on how the recovery goes and will be waiting for Tricky Dicky's rejection for his small stroll round London Town.
Cheers for the endorsements there Hot Tub, I'm entering the Badger and Fireworks. Can't do Belles because it clashes with having some visitors, the selfish so and so's.
Another 4 miler today, feeling quite good generally although the foot is still niggling me.
I've noticed the entry for RSM is open already. It's tempting, but I'll wait for Ricky Branson's rejection letter first.

You say something like that to pirates and you get press ganged.
Sorry still not had time to sort out finding all the conprestion stuff. sister got married at the weekend.
It was indeed HTA!! I sat in the rooftop jacuzzi with the sights of Belfast all around sipping champagne - bliss!! I'm starting to think my liver needs a bit of a rest now, time to go back on the straight & narrow!!
I'm going to venture out for an easy 5 or 6 miles tomorrow, then hopefully I'll get back down to running club on Thursday night. I just plan to ease myself back in. I'm actually sitting wondering what marathon to do next!!! I'm thinking Belfast marathon on 2nd May could be the one - its my local race & I've yet to tackle it! Or Barcelona in March could be tempting!!
