I ran this morning for the first time since the race. I was heeding the advice to rest a day for each mile of the race, but I just can't do it! I ran 3.1 miles this morning and it was glorious! I ran the middle mile in 10:45. Woo Hoo! That is super fast for me. It felt great!
I swam 600 meters last night in 20 minutes. I needed to be somewhere at 5:30, and I ran into an old spinning class friend in the pool. We probably chatted for 20 minutes - which cut into my swimming time. But it was so good to see him and nice to just stand in the pool for a while too.
I am now looking forward to a nice restful three day weekend. I don't need to do anything but pull a few weeds, shampoo the carpet in the living room, etc. But I don't really HAVE to do anything. It is nice. Long ago and far away, I had thought I would run the Bolder Boulder 10K on Monday - but I am going to skip trying to do that. It would have been nice to do it on the 20th anniversary of the first time I ran it, but I don't need to do that!
Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone!
