Well here we are, a week after Ragnar already and I'm starting to feel anxious and achy. I've been taking at least 5-7 days off after each major event to just let things settle. I haven't run since last Saturday.
Sunday I was tender.
Monday I felt some lingering aches.
Tuesday I felt 90%. But I know better than to push too soon.
The great news is that my recovery time seems to get quicker and quicker with each event/endurance race I do. I also seem to be eating more after each event too - not sure what's going on there but it doesn't seem to adversely impact anything.
Besides, we have some family stuff coming up and a busy couple months with work will limit any formal training routine.
Know what though? I'm totally fine with that.
