I didn’t drink tonight. The first Saturday in ages. I rarely drink on Friday because of CrossFit (used to be long runs)
That meant Saturdays were my day/night to let my hair down and forget about the world for a bit.
Now that I am doing the food challenge there is only 1 day with booze allowed without penalty.
Tomorrow is bowling and we have to make up a league night. = 4 hours of bowling. Yep no way I am doing that sans beer!
So instead of drinking I cleAned the kitchen and prepped food!
Lincoln Marathon Part 3
I finished the marathon.
That was the easy part!
Enduring the next 4 days was the hard part.
I went home and showered and had some recoverite and a snack. My stomach was upset and not happy.
i was exhausted and promptly went to bed after getting cleaned up and and fed. This probably wasn’t the smartest thing for the legs but I physically couldn’t stay awake any longer.
I slept hard for 2 hours and had a hard time waking up to go meet the internet.
We all met at Lazlos for some mediocre food.
Went home and went back to bed.
I had Monday off work and that was a good thing. I could BARELY walk. My legs hurt worse then they ever had before in my ENTIRE life! I was also still exhausted. The ONLY thing I did that day was accompany my sister to the store. Otherwise I was busy sleeping!
I never got the overwhelming desire to eat everything that I hear people talking about.
Tuesday was about 50% better. I still couldn’t walk normal and couldn’t command my legs to move faster then a sleepy turtle.
Wednesday was again 50% better and I no longer needed ibuprofen to get through the day.
Thursday I finally felt almost whole again and by Friday my legs were back to normal. Except an area of “injury” on my right leg from a muscle used for walking that is still swollen today.
Anyway, the recovery from the marathon was waaaaaay worse then the marathon itslef.
I am praying that the recovery after Chicago will be far easier as we are staying for 3 days after to sight see.
