I've had my marathon recap written for a few days now but having computer issues at home (where the photos are loaded) so I promise, the novel will eventually be posted :)
In the meantime, recovery is going well. I took full advantage of "Zero Week" to fit in some social gatherings and volunteer work and catch up on some (apparently) much needed sleep. Got in my 1st run last Friday with only some weird pain behind my left knee which is now gone. Have run once this week and did yoga last night. Hoping the weather will hold out tonight so I can run outdoors and check out some of the neighborhood Christmas lights. (It has gone from 15 degrees on Tuesday to 60 degrees today, so I need to take advantage while I can!)
I don't know what I thought recovery would be like, but I didn't expect the soreness to subside so quickly! (I took the stairs at work last Monday and was wearing heels by last Tuesday!) Right now it's harder to mentally get "up" for a run than it is physicially. I am definitely looking forward to running another marathon (soon?) if I can mentally gear myself up for the extreme long runs. For now, focusing on getting back out there and hopefully scoring a half marathon PR on Valentines weekend!
